4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Virtually everyone is fit at Williams.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: way more hook-ups than long-term relationships

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty preppy and lacks creativity of style. Typical northeastern school--everyone wears the same thing. Pretty boring if you ask me, but most people don't seem to mind. Unfortunately.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are enough attractive people here. There is a solid hookup culture. The biggest problem with that is that there's an excess amount of very attractive, athletic and motivated guys, but not as many traditionally "attractive" girls. This results in a weird phenomenon where lots of guys have to vie for a relatively small population of desirable girls, and some of these girls quickly develop inflated egos. Even if you were the sort of guy getting 9's in high school, prepare to have to settle for 7's at Williams who nonetheless think that they're too good for you. For this reason, you will learn to take advantage of the fact that there are tons of really cool, wicked smart girls here that you'd be better off talking to/getting to know outside of the hookup scene.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Pretty Damn Good – You've got a range here. Some very attractive people, some not so much. But a lot of people play sports, hit up the gym, or are active and athletic in general. Also, everyone is really smart.

Guys and girls at Williams spend a lot of time complaining about one another, but the truth is that they are just like most college students. Williams students are good-looking, athletic, and like to have a lot of fun. Maturity might come to some of them well after college, but most create strong friendships, and those who wish to commit form relationships.

It is said that 50 percent of Williams graduates marry another Williams student. Scary or not, this says a lot about whether students like one another.
