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.
