    Campus Safety

    Campus security patrols campus 24/7 ensuring maximum safety.

    Clubs and Activities

    Wide range of activities and clubs are available to students. These range from sailing, equestrian, choir, fishing, and computers. The lake is available for students who want to canoe and fish. Also available for use is a large walking path around the lake and an enclosed indoor outdoor basketball court.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who like a small campus or prefer individual attention. Are attending school for the education rather than parties. Sudents who are individuals looking for a way to set themselves a part from the rest.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Located right next to the GWC campus is an old observatory. Unlike many other old observatories, this one has been visited by someone very famous. None other than Albert Einstein. THis observatory is only one of two places that Einstein visited during his trip to the United States.

    Bang for the buck

    Top notch education, great scholarships, and low cost! What more could you ask for?

    What to do for fun

    George Williams College is a college that is forever evolving and adding new experiences. Clubs range from choir and fishing to computers and sailing. However, if you have an Idea to start a new club GWC wants to hear about it! Tell them what your interested in and they will strive to incorporate it.

    Food and Dining

    Since George Williams Campus is so small the ability to have home cooked meals three times a day actually happens. Vegetables and Fruits are grown on the garden located on campus. Every meal is destined to be a tasty treat and could leave you wondering if you just ate at a five star restaurant.

    Dorm Life

    GWC has many options to chose from when it comes to dorm life. Whether you choose to live by yourself or with one or two other roommates. The rooms are spacious and freshly completed. WIth each room containing its own bathroom, air-conditioning, and lake side view who could argue with this humble abode?

    Academic Rigor

    GWC has an integrative way of teaching. Unlike most classrooms where you sit through lectures with a hundred other students, GWC allows you to experience your learning through hands on procedures. Professors show you how to apply the information instead of expecting you to figure it out. At GWC innovation is a tool that you are taught to incorporate.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should know what type of school they are looking for. George Williams College is a school for the dedicated and driven, not people who are going for the partying atmosphere. At George Williams College an expected student teacher ration is 10:1. When attending your first visit engage yourself and ask questions. Type up your questions on a sheet of paper if your afraid you will forget. Smile, GWC is a friendly campus that wants to help you succeed.

    In three sentences

    George Williams college is a college that stands out from the pack. Due to its small size everyone is on a first name basis. The care put into the school and lakeside view shows just how dedicated students are to their school and education.

    Campus Safety

    I think we have great campus safety. we see them everyday, all the time and they know us all by name. we know them so well that we have casual conversation with them. they keep us safe and even come down when we get locked out of our room.

    What to do for fun

    we have many events for students to have fun together. just recently we had a murder mystery dinner, which I admit was fun. soon we will have a video game night which will be fun. we have bashes that the school plan for us. It's where we all come to together to dance and create fun memories.

    Food and Dining

    the food here is better than most colleges. we have good food in our dinning hall and it is buffet style. we also have something which we call the college inn which is another option for food. I must admit, while there are some healthy options, the food there is kind of like our version of fast food. the food there is so good though.

    Dorm Life

    for dorm life I think it's all about the dorm you live in. if you live in the emery dorm, your room looks like a hotel room. it looks like that is because it used to be hotel rooms. if you live in oak or hickory, your room doesn't look like a hotel room but the room is still nice. all dorms have a bathroom so there is no community showers, which is a major plus.

    Academic Rigor

    sometimes I wish the classes would be like other schools but I think it makes us different. At this school, the teachers make sure you are successful. if you are not a lazy person you will do great.

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage you to visit the school because if you love beautiful scenery this is the place to be. the lake s right on campus and you see beautiful trees everywhere.

    In three sentences

    George Williams college is a great school. we are like a family here. if you don't want to be just a number at a big school, this is the place for you.
