(NECN/WPTZ: Middlebury, VT) - Some students are letting the world know why they love Middlebury College in Vermont.

They have created a rap video called "Midd Kid", shot on and around the campus.
In the five minute video, three students rap about Vermont cheddar cheese, the school's quidditch team, and they show just how much they like to party.

The students say they filmed the video one weekend in January, and intended it to be a joke. However, not everyone is laughing.
