    try new things! especially academically. branch out, take things that sound interesting, not things you think you should take.

    williams students are all pretty involved. this does not mean we are all involved in everything, but many of us dedicate ourselves to something we are truly passionate about. write about that in your common app essay. williams likes to hear what you believe, how that formed you into the person you are today, and how that will help the community at our school.

    definitely try and talk to current students. visiting is nice, but talking to students will give you a much better sense of if williams might be right for you. just visiting might give you a skewed view of williams if it happens to be nice/bad weather and/or midterms/finals. current students will really be able to break down the pros and cons of williams and give you a better idea of what going to college on an isolated campus is like.

    Don't be afraid of the price tag. Williams has an extremely generous financial aid policy that will make it feasible for you to attend. Take advantage of the free transport between Williamstown and other cities like North Adams and Pittsfield, as well as all of the musical groups and speakers who come to campus.

    If you're looking to apply: Williams has a huge emphasis on community. It's almost sacred. It's good to have an awesome academic record, because everyone on campus is just as smart or smarter than you. Of course you could always apply just to see; I know plenty of people who did not have the best grades and are doing great here. If you've been accepted: Move-in day was especially hard for me because I had never visited the campus. Even if money is tight, go visit! The campus roads are meandering, and they don't really go where you expect them to. I almost passed the college going down Route 2 on move-in day... Don't worry about not fitting in. No one here fits a stereotype.
