Welcome back students, and to the Class of 2023, welcome to Williams!

We hope you all had amazing summer adventures and your first week of classes went well. Congratulations to the 180 students who received summer funding to pursue unpaid internships all around the world. (Did you know that almost 90% of Williams students have participated in at least one internship over their four years?)  You are not going to believe the many fall opportunities we have lined up for you to explore your future. See below for a sampling. Be sure to stop by Mears House for Quick Questions (M - F, 1 - 4 pm) or make an appointment on Handshake to meet with an advisor. We are here every step of the way!
