Ephpreciation Wordmark

Ephpreciation is a celebration of the big and little things that Ephs do for one another. The Williams experience is lifelong, as alumni and families continue to support one another and current students in many recognizable ways. If the academic year only operated with tuition, the lights would turn off around January 14. Each year, financial gifts and volunteer time from alumni and families ensure that Williams provides the best possible experience for students—well beyond what tuition can cover.

In January 2023, more than 50 students participated during Winter Study and met with members of our Alumni Identity Networks, learned about how the Society of Alumni works, shared nearly 100 reflections on their time at Williams and signed over 4,500 thank you cards!

“Through the support of both peers and faculty, I discovered my passion for computing; I’m almost embarrassed by the warm giddiness I get when sitting down to code out a program. Nonetheless, that first Computer Science class I took in my Freshman Fall was followed by another and another, until I’m finally in my very last semester, and am so fortunate to look forward to a software engineering job after graduation. Beyond the obvious career advancement that Williams had allowed me, I’m also blessed to bring a liberal arts education to my work in the future. Thank you for all the opportunities these past 4 years, and thank you for teaching me to be a person that wants to create the same (if not more!) opportunities for others in the future.”

Stay tuned!

Ephpreciation will return next year! If you have questions or would like to learn about other ways to engage with alumni, reach out to [email protected]!
