The Greylocks Fall Mini Reunions

Print

One weekend each fall, The Greylocks (the post-50th classes of the Society of Alumni) gather in Williamstown for a series of mini reunions. Classes from 1945 through the current 50th reunion classes descend on the Purple Valley for a weekend of faculty lectures, class dinners, sporting events, entertainment by the Williams College Jazz Band, and a tailgate lunch on Weston Field before Saturday’s football game.

There are no Fall Mini Reunions in 2021.
