Mountain Day 2013 Recap

A chilly fall morning greeted Williams College students as the bells rang out the “The Mountains,” signifying the start of Mountain Day 2013. Hiking Mount Greylock, lunch at the all-campus picnic, an adventure race, and an evening polar bear swim were just some of the outdoor activities in which students, faculty, and staff participated.
