I am not sure if this is a very good thing or a very bad thing, but Williams College got a mention in a recent episode of As the World Turns.
When she gets back to Lucinda’s, Lucy tells Paul she is upset she didn’t go to an interview at Williams College. Paul agrees to take her, and when Lucy embraces him, Paul realizes there may be more to Lucy’s feelings for him than friendship.
I am assuming that Lucy is a prospective student, but perhaps she is a perspective faculty member. If so, we should all do our best to ensure that the show’s writers our aware of the College’s charitable donations to local schools and hospitals.
Imagine the possibilities if Lucy decides to come to Williams! Affairs with faculty members, murder in the freshmen quad, housing lottery machinations, unexplained amnesia during finals — my mind reels at the possibilities.
