Well, it is cold. However, it is a matter of how cold is too cold for you. As time goes by, most students learn to cope with the cold, and some actually enjoy the snow. Fortunately, the valley that Williamstown sits in protects Williams from the harshest part of storms that hit the rest of the Berkshires.
The fall is the highlight of Williamstown. Set in the forest and mountain areas of Massachusetts, Williamstown is surrounded by beautiful scenery, even if the weather is a bit chilly. Students find themselves anticipating the coming of spring when the snow finally melts, the weather warms up, and the color returns to Williamstown.
