Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Dress for the ski slopes in winter because it can get pretty cold.
  • Williams College isn't as well known as big names like Ivies, but when you find someone who has heard of Williams, they know of its reputation and most of the time they're the one that can get you a job.
  • Williamstown offers a unique opportunity to live in the middle of nature while learning and laughing and enjoying every second of it.
