Congratulations on your acceptance to Williams!



Williams Previews—Admitted Students Program

April 17 and 18, 2014

We hope you and your family will join us for Williams Previews on April 17 and 18. The program will give you a real sense of what life would be like as a Williams student: you can stay overnight in a dorm, eat in dining halls, participate in classes, meet faculty, and get to know students.

Schedule of Events and Online Registration

Event registration is now closed. If you are still interested in attending Williams Previews, you are encouraged to join us. We will have on-site registration available in the lobby of the ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance (CTD). Please report to the ’62 CTD upon arrival on campus and one of our staff will be glad to assist you. While we cannot guarantee you an overnight host for Thursday, April 17th, we will do our best to accommodate you.

In the meantime, you can check out the schedule and classes offered during Previews.

You can access your My Williams Account number by logging into your My Williams Account. Once you log in, the number is visible in the top left hand corner of the page.

Meeting with Financial Aid

While the Previews program includes an overview of financial aid at Williams for all admitted students and families, if you have specific questions about your financial aid award, we encourage you to schedule a one-on-one appointment with your financial aid officer for when you’re on campus. The Office of Financial Aid will be available on Wednesday, April 16 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, April 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., as well as during its normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) on Friday, April 18.


Exploring Williams Beyond Previews

If you can’t make it for Previews, you’re welcome to visit anytime. Admission staff will be available to speak with admitted students from on weekdays from March 31 to April 30 (and we’ll have campus tours at 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.).

Overnight Visits
Overnight hosting for admitted students may be available during April 7 – 10, April 20 – 24, and April 27 – 30. Contact Kellen Williams to check hosting availability and schedule your visit.
