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.

This college is entitled as the number 1 Liberal Arts schools, the small class and the care from the professors. We love it.

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

While Williams College may the the 18th most expensive college in the country, it is worth a visit, because those are free. I may be biased, but I know that when I go visit other colleges, for whatever reason, I am often struck by how shabby they look compared to Williams. Williams takes excellent care of it's campus, which makes... More

Beautiful day to listen to the college students giving parents and visitors a tour of this beautiful campus. They are so very informative. They can even walk and talk backwards. You need to be toward the front or sometimes your group talks so it is hard to hear the student speaker. Lots of museums to see also.

My husband and I met sorting silverware at our work study jobs in the Williams College freshman cafeteria 41 years ago, so this is a completely biased review. Our last visit (our first in 12 twelve years) was at the end of the fall foliage season, but the area is truly beautiful in any season. We enjoyed walking around and... More

We made a campus tour of this college, and were impressed. It seemed like the only private liberal arts college that we have been to which has academic quality as well as smaller class size. Many other colleges similar in description seemed like depositories for the monied but unintellectual classes.
