Great place to be. I love this college and the town in which it is located. My daughter is a student here so maybe I am bias :-)

Beautiful campus. Come often for sports events. Lots of old buildings and some newer ones like Bronfman. Stopped into the Williams Shop and picked up a couple of knick-knacks. I run and the campus is great for that, up this path, down that. Stylish students mixed with jocks. Ate a nice meal on campus but can't recall the name. Winters... More

I have visited this beautiful, historic campus at least four times in the past couple of decades. I have attended seminars here, stayed on campus, and eaten in the dining halls. It is rich in historic tradition, and utterly lovely. You don't have to attend college here to enjoy a visit to the campus. Just spend a few quiet hours... More

We enjoyed wandering around this beautiful old campus. The buildings are historic and great to photograph! Because it was summer, we only saw a few students walking around.

It was a cold, rainy day, but the games were fun to watch. They could use some porta-johns nearby, though. Beautiful location....

We visited the area due to my son being interested in the school itself for 2014. I must say the school is exceptional in everything they so, so being a student here must be an honor and privilege. You will notice the school spirit and their intense passion, and though this can be said of other schools, it was a... More

Took a ride to see Williams College (#1 liberal arts college in the country). It was well worth the drive. Rt. 2 (Mohawk Trail) is just an amazing drive. Winding roads with nice stops to take pictures of the mountains. Williamstown has some cute shops but we didn't park and it was move-in day for students and didn't feel like... More

This is hardly review of the college. We just walked through the campus and admired pseudo-roman and pseudo-classic and neo-gothic architecture, green lawns and were watching happy faces of students walking across. All looked great except gym shorts worn by girls. The college should hire a designer to modify the gym shorts. Even long leg girls look in those shorts... More
