Ephprofiles

These student profiles showcase the impact alumni and parent contributions have on the current students of the college.

Want to write your own profile? Profiles should include your name and class year and a brief (250-300 word) description of your experiences while at Williams. Profiles should thank Eph Alumni for their support, but the exact format is up to you! Send completed profiles to Laura Day in the Alumni Fund office.

  • Bill Zito ’16

    William Zito, Class of 2016

    Thank you for every opportunity to challenge myself, every snippet of information I’ve learned, and most of all for every professor, staff member, and friend I’ve met here. My name is Bill Zito and I’m a member of the Class of 2016 from Severna Park, Maryland, but Williams is my...

    My name is Allison Wu, and I am a member of the Class of 2016 from Newton, Massachusetts. I wrote a thank you note to Eph alumni last year as a freshman to express my thanks for contributing to the Alumni Fund and thus the Williams experience, and I’m writing to...

    "These are the last four years of my life when learning, both inside and outside the classroom, is my only responsibility. Thank you so much for your gift to the Alumni Fund. It’s the Eph community, with alumni like you, who make these four years some of the best of our lives."
  • Austin Nguyen ’15

    "I now understand what it means to have two homes – a home into which you are born and a home that you later seek out in terms of what you value most. My deepest gratitude goes to Williams for providing the latter."
  • Lindsay Thygesen ’14

    Lindsay Thygesen
    "Outside the classroom, artistic performances, sporting events, and student organizations illustrate the multifaceted nature of the typical Williams student. As an editor for the Williams Record, I not only have had the opportunity to immerse myself in the arts, sports, and news that make up campus life, but I have also had the chance to work with a great group of people that have encouraged me to grow and develop as a person."
  • Meredith Sopher ’14

    Meredith Sopher
    "I chose Williams in part because my dad is an alumnus and constantly waxes rhapsodic about his time here. Most of his closest friends are people he met during his first year of college. “Just wait until you get to Williams and start making friends!” my dad told me after I received my acceptance. Now that I’m an Eph, I can honestly say that my friends play a tremendous role in making my Williams experience the best ever."
  • Pat Megley ’14

    Pat Megley
    "I’ve begun to realize that an education is not just about one class, or even four years in one place: it is the beginning of a lifelong process of discovery that will take me in many, often unexpected, directions. That, for me, is the gift of being a student at Williams."
  • Annie Longobardo ’14

    Annie Longobardo
    "It was my first English class at Williams and the first day I was intimidated by the strong group of women sitting around the seminar table. But that group of thirteen women became my close friends, with all of us learning about each other and ourselves; this is one of the things I love about Williams: friendship can appear in surprising places."
  • Richard Beaton ’14

    Richard Beaton
    "The most amazing aspects of Williams are the opportunities outside the classroom. I’ve been lucky enough to make the football and track and field teams where I’ve bonded with my teammates and made friendships which will last long past my days here. The overwhelming feeling of acceptance and belonging makes Williams a special place to me. The professors are willing to find time to work one on one if requested and, no matter what sport it is, the coaches know your academics take priority..."
