Williams Previews—Admitted Students Program

On April 17 and 18, more than 400 students admitted to the Williams Class of 2018 visited campus to experience life at the college firsthand.

If you weren’t able to attend Williams Previews, you can check out a video of the Welcome Address held at Chapin Hall, featuring President Adam Falk, Director of Admission Richard Nesbitt ’74, Associate Dean of the Faculty/Professor of Religion Denise Buell, and undergraduates April Jenkins ’14 and Fernando Lora Jr. ’14.

Whether you were able to join us for Previews or not, you can continue to learn more about Williams below.


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.

Exploring Williams Beyond Previews

If you weren’t able to make it for Previews, you’re welcome to visit anytime. Admission staff will be available to speak with admitted students from on weekdays until 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 20 – 24 and April 27 – 30. Contact Kellen Williams to check hosting availability and schedule your visit.


Did you miss our Tweet-up for admitted students?
On Tuesday, April 8 at 9 p.m., current Williams students, faculty, and staff were on hand to answer questions about classes, roommates, campus jobs, and more. You can see that conversation here. In addition, you can join the student-maintained Class of 2018 Facebook community.
