The New York Times had a recent article about colleges offering on-campus burial plots for alumni. The article, “Colleges Offering Campuses as Final Resting Places,” notes, “In an era when many people are highly mobile and do not settle in one place for long, a college can have a strong allure as a final resting place.”

I believe Williams used to offer such a service to alumni, but since the burial ground is filling up (it’s next to Mission Park, and it’s a great place for snagging some rays in late Spring), it’s now only available to faculty.
