Reunion 2020

While we've had to take a pause from an in-person Reunion, we hope you will join us in engaging with Williams in some small way throughout this week. Whether joining one of the virtual programs, exploring the archives, venturing out on a sunrise hike, wearing a bit of purple, sharing your voice, or zooming with a fellow classmate, Williams is so much more than a campus. And you are reminders of that every day.
