  • Smitten with her beauty! Immersed in the greenery of a century-old college. Named in honor of the patron of Ephraim Williams. Built in 1793godu. Williams called the College of the Liberal Arts ". Its territory occupies almost the entire city. Purple color, a symbol of the College. In this color painted Stadium, tennis courts and a form of athletes. Small town living student life.

  • Just visited. I spent three days on campus with a host student. It was really great. The people were amazingly nice, always helpful. There's a lot of diversity on campus on every level and the classes are wonderful. I always had this image in my mind of a large lecture-style class where everyone is on laptops scrambling to copy down whatever their prof is saying and that's just not the case here. The classes are really small, with like 8-12 students being average. A few entry-level courses are the exception. You'll get a lot of one on one time with the teachers here, which I like. The food is pretty good, I especially like the sandwich-making stations in Mission and Driscoll dining halls, as well as the always-there cereal. Paresky's snack bar was also quite appealing, as they serve breakfast foods, smoothies, shakes, and nachos after dark. The campus is gorgeous, there are no pictures that do it justice. If you have the opportunity to visit, I'd highly recommend it. The administration went above and beyond to make both prospective students and parents feel welcome in every way. They even sent us back to the airport with snacks for the trip. If you're considering Williams as an option, you're in great hands.
  • Gorgeous campus integrated with a sleepy New England town. We visited for a swim meet and loved it. Facilities were well maintained, and buildings were easy to find. Staff I interacted with were helpful and friendly.
  • Loved visiting friends here. The campus is beautiful and biking to the farms around here is great.
  • Incredible school. Beautiful campus. Despite the seemingly outrageous workloads that students can be subjected to, I truly enjoyed my experience here. I would advise students to actively engage faculty and administrators in order to discover the many opportunities for enrichment. There are amazing internship and volunteer opportunities that students can tap into if they seek them. Williams does a great job of putting many of those opportunities directly in the students' laps, but that can mislead them into thinking that all the things that are available will be presented to them. That is not always the case. Many excellent opportunities still have to be sought. Also, fully embrace the corniness that is Mountain Day and you will enjoy it.
  • Beautiful campus a classic New England college town. It is also a great school. Beautiful in the fall months.
