    The classes are fast paced and challenging, particularly the math and science courses. If you keep up with the coursework, reading, and go to office hours, you definetly learn a lot. English classes are not much different than high school. You have a small discussion class and are graded heavily on participation. Depending on your teacher, you can become a better writer by constructive criticism. However, one teacher loved my writing and I got As on all my papers, while my other English teacher never gave me more than a B and always remarked that my writing was convoluted. In my biology class in the spring, I never did too well on the tests, despite my best efforts to go to office hours and study. I recommend reviewing the material over the summer to be more prepared for the material when the school year starts. My introductory anthropology class did not teach me a lot, I mostly got information from the readings, which were very dry, long, and oftentimes boring. I recommend taking a higher level anthropology class to learn more about specific topics. read full review

    Have heard from a close friend and current Williams student that there is a huge party and alcohol culture. Sometimes even in the entries, there is peer pressure (from fellow students and from the resident advisor) to drink, often as the only social activity. Perhaps partly because of Williamstown's isolation, there are few (non-lame) alternatives to alcohol-based partying. Entries can help form diverse friend groups (the college makes an effort to place together people with different backgrounds and interests), but they can also isolate people. read full review
