Williams Students Online, Williamstown, MA
This summer I had the pleasure of interning with Williams Students Online (WSO), an organization run by students for students. The organization has two main focus areas, the primary of which is the web-based WSO website. This site includes several tools for students including: Facebook, as a search engine to look up students that attend Williams; Dormtrak, a site to find reviews left by other students of the various residence halls on campus; Factrak, similar to Dormtrak but used to learn more about the quality of different professors and classes; and Willipedia, a Wikipedia based site containing helpful information about the Williams campus and student life. The other area of WSO that I worked on is the fairly new Williams Mobile App. This app takes the WSO website and condenses it into a mobile app, with a few additional features such as a list of dining hall menus and daily messages.
The Collins Internship and Williams Students Online have allowed me to gain some introductory experience in the tech industry and I am very grateful for the opportunity.
