Williams is a life-shaping journey that will inspire and guide you to think, create and act with purpose. Our location in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts is a place where you can find both focus and connection. It’s a community where you'll surround yourself with two thousand passionate and intelligent peers, learning with others who are dedicated to becoming deeper thinkers and more effective leaders.
A beacon for intellectual explorers, Williams will help you climb higher and farther than you imagined possible.
What does it mean to attend one of the trailblazing schools that launched American higher education? You have the opportunity to explore 65 different areas of study, punctuated by transformative experiences that take you far beyond conventional ideas about academic rigor.
A legacy of extraordinary outcomes
Williams alumni are the secret to your success. From your very first semester you’ll be connected to a global alumni network of business leaders, innovators, scholars, public servants, researchers, artists and others, who are rightly admired for helping students achieve their career and life goals. Our extensive alumni mentorship and internship programs give you the chance to learn from their successes and reach for your own.
makes it all
From tutorials to career mentoring, a Williams education is about the whole person. We think about all of your needs in our financial aid program, too–not just tuition, room and board, but also textbooks, Study Away, even health insurance and summer storage. Every student is unique, so our financial aid offerings are as well.
Not many U.S. colleges can make that kind of commitment to student success. Then again, most colleges aren't Williams.
It would be no small advantage if every college were thus located at the base of a mountain.
