Semester In Review and Happiest of Holidays!
Fall 2019, what a semester!  September kicked off with our annual Job & Internship Fair with nearly 60 hiring organizations and 300 well-dressed students in attendance. In October, there were numerous How'd You Get There alumni conversations, coffee chats, employer and graduate school information visits, campus interviews, off-campus career events and more! In November, Dylan Barbour '16 visited. Enough said. 
In December, EphLink hit the 10,000 message mark between alumni and students with over 4,000 registered users! LSAT test-takers doubled over last year, SPEC 26 applicants tripled, 70+ students were provided suits through the Goodwill SuitYourself Program, and there were over 1,000 individual student appointments.

In short, Fall 2019 has been among my favorites in 20 years of working on college campuses. It went by blazingly fast, was filled with students eager to get a jump on internships, jobs, and graduate school. As a result, we've seen a number of early acceptances and successes. Confidence, connections, and direction are all growing! Congratulations to all Williams students on the completion of yet another successful semester.  Here's wishing you and your families the happiest of holidays and an enjoyable break ahead. 2020 awaits!
