From the Institution

Williams College is a private liberal arts college in the region of Massachusetts known as the Berkshires. In addition to all the things that make liberal arts colleges the global gold standard-small classes, attentive faculty, close-knit community-Williams offers unique opportunities like our renowned tutorial classes (just two students and one professor!) and robust research in every discipline. Students choose among 65 areas of study from Astrophysics to Art History; nearly 50% major in STEM and 40% double major. Our diverse learning community of 2,200 students from 48 states and 93 countries is distinctly collaborative, with the ability to get involved in over 150 student-run organizations and 350 local grassroots organizations. Our fiercely loyal alumni network provides internships to 77% of students during their time at Williams and funds unpaid or low-paying internship opportunities. Williams graduates thrive and lead in fields as diverse and evolving as they are themselves, and most frequently attend graduate schools like Harvard, Columbia and Yale. Williams meets 100% of demonstrated need and is home to the nation's first All-Grant Financial Aid program, which means NO loans and NO work requirement, in addition to FREE textbooks, health insurance, summer storage and more for all students on financial aid.
