Windows on Williams

Windows on Williams (WOW) gives high school seniors the opportunity to experience Williams. WOW participants get to know current students, attend classes, meet with professors, and learn about our admission process and extraordinary financial aid program. WOW is a selective program open to high school students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Massachusetts travel restrictions, Williams is not currently hosting visitors. We are hopeful that we'll be able to hold the WOW program on campus, but won't know for certain until later this summer.

The 2021 WOW programs will be held September 23 to 25 and October 7 to 9, 2021.

There are two application deadlines. Regardless of when you apply, you'll have the opportunity to select which WOW program you want to attend.

To apply:

Deadline 1: Apply by July 10 and hear your decision by July 30.

Deadline 2: Apply by August 10 and hear your decision by August 31.

Please email [email protected] with any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to Williams this fall either virtually or on campus!
