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
You can check out the preliminary schedule for Previews, and then register online by April 10. To register, you’ll need your My Williams Account number, which can be found in the top left corner once you log in to your My Williams Account.
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 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.
Join us on Tuesday, April 8 at 9 p.m. for a Tweet-up! Have a question about Previews? Curious to hear more about life at Williams? Want to meet other admits to the Class of 2018? Follow hashtag #Williams2018 to join in. Current Williams students will be on hand to answer questions about classes, roommates, campus jobs, and more. We’ll even be giving away a Williams T-shirt or two. You can see conversations from previous Tweet-ups here.
