We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Mauro

Never underestimate the power of a liberal arts education. The 7:1 student to professor ratio is great to engage the material being taught. Also, the high-quality professors here make this a unique educational experience I cannot imagine receiving anywhere else. On top of that, the social scene is great. It's small enough to feel like a small community yet it still retains the ability for students to explore new friend groups.

A very challenging academic schedule with all the support available for help. Athletics are very popular and many, many other club opportunities. So much to do, no time to sleep. Class size is ideal for those who want one on one with professors. It is a pleasure to be around students and professors that love to learn and teach.

Williams College is a rigorous and challenging school, but it is doable. It the type of school that will teach you the meaning of being an independent and unique individual. You will meet others who have come from different or similar educational backgrounds as you, but will come to find that intellect is not something that will make you distinct amongst your peers. It may make you distinct in the classes, given how challenging they tend to be, and how small they are, as Williams wants to make each experience unique for each of it's students, but you quickly learn that isn't everything. Williams will make you confront yourself and make you really think and wonder what about yourself is so unique. What makes you, you. How well do you know yourself? You will be asking yourself these questions as you learn more about yourself and find who you are as a person. Williams is a challenging school but it is a school that will make you question and confront on who you are.

I absolutely love Williams! It is such a unique school. The people there are so interesting and accomplished, yet humble and friendly. Academics are taken very seriously and intellectual conversations are frequently had, even outside of the classroom. I love it!

Williams is a special place. Classes are rigorous and push you to develop yourself as an analytical thinker. Professors are top notch. Athletic culture, relatively large percent of varsity athletes.

Angel

While Williams can be a great academic challenge, the isolated location and pervasive white liberalism can be exhausting. Being a predominantly white institution with almost no opportunity to leave campus, it can be mentally and socially taxing for students of color. On the other hand, affinity groups and extracurriculars usually provide a good space to escape the " Williams Purple Bubble." What makes the school worthwhile are the professors; they are incredibly accessible and always willing to sit down and truly get to know you. They truly debunk the hard-ass elite professor with their kind humility and well-intended nature!
