A Learning Community You Live In
The Williams community is made up of more than 2,200 students from 49 states and 97 countries. Hockey players and debaters and sculptors and physicists. People of all genders, races and backgrounds. Fresh from military service, or first in their family to attend college. All of them Ephs. No one at Williams is the same as anyone else. And, because of that, no one is alone.
You'll learn in classrooms and residence halls alike — a positive, supportive residential community devoted to your personal and intellectual development. Cultivate your leadership skills. Meet people from places you've never been. Learn to manage your time and care for mind and body. From your first-year "entry" to the chance to work as a Junior Advisor, living at Williams helps you grow in ways you may never have expected.
