One of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States. It is really a university that keeps its "College" designation for some reason. Tree lined, and grassy with great old stone buildings - and some new.

Love going to the Williamstown Theater in the summertime here at Williams College. Some students are still around and it is a beautiful campus.

So we did the information session/tour combo on a beautiful spring day. The campus is lovely (with hunks of snow still in various areas in April!). It is in the middle of no where. There are mountains near by and whenever the students talked about their involvement it was working with the nearby community(population 7900) or going abroad. Very small... More

We went on a 3hour orientation and campus tour. Only negative was trudging through 20"+ of snow during the Blizzard of 2017! Students were in good spirits and the campus was beautiful under the blanket of new snow.

Williams is nestled in the Berkshire Mountains where Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York come together. It is quaint and a nice respite visit during travel. Williams is located in Williamstown and has a few shops and restaurants. The college has a storied history dating back to the late 1700s.

Our daughter went to Williams college, so we were in this beautiful city. Beautiful nature, mountains. A small town with lovely kind people. We were at the college tour, and there were a lot of impressions. We are very glad that our daughter is in this fantastic city and it is very important in a safe. Humans are very different... More

We've driven through many times, in spring, fall and winter but recently decided to stop for a walkabout. The wide, safe flat sidewalks made that easy, and the wonderful range of striking buildings were a delight to see. there are some shops and eateries in the small downtown, but the campus is the real attraction.

We really enjoyed walking through Williams College. The grounds are really pretty, nice to stroll through. We were during the college break, I am sure it is even more beautiful and lively when classes are going on. The museum is small and cute, - worth stopping by. The sculptures outside (the huge eyes) are perfect setting for pictures. The view... More

Small college with a number of interesting buildings to walk around. Shops & restaurants are limited to mainly one street with more just out of town.
