Junior Advisor Alumni Submissions

As some of you may have read in The Record, the Junior Advisor system has undergone changes in the last few years. Even though these changes have not impacted much of the day to day expectations of JAs, we have experienced a slight decline in interest. Here is where you come in! As we recruit the next class of JAs, we’d love to include alumni voices in the conversation. With the inclusion of your voices, we hope to “zoom out” and contextualize the role of a JA beyond four years at Williams, and highlight the lifelong impact that this position entails.

We think that framing the JA role through the lens of life experiences that you all have will help lend objectivity to the benefits of the role. We would appreciate if you could help us reach the sophomore class by sharing your thoughts and reflections on your time as a JA. We have included a list of different questions that we think might be relevant. Please help us by submitting a short video by December 17th (see instructions below).

Thank you,
Junior Advisor Advisory Board
