Dire and Important Letter from the President

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have just received a message of vital importance. Information so integral to the very spirit of the College should not be taken lightly; proceed at your own risk and trepidation.

Today is Mountain Day!

It’s a day for our community.

All classes are cancelled.

Get outside,

meet new people,

and make the most of it!

M. Schapiro


From Scott Lewis, Director of the Outing Club:

Visit http://wso.williams.edu/orgs/woc to see the list of hikes and
on-campus events.

A quick summary of the day:

10 a.m. – hike to Stone Hill from Chapin Steps

11 a.m. – community picnic on Chapin Lawn

12:30 p.m. – bus transportation to Stony Ledge trailhead (the bus will not bring you directly to Stony Ledge).

4:30 p.m. – bus transportation from Stoney Ledge trailhead to Chapin Steps

Remember that this is an opportunity to “seize the day” and to celebrate our wonderful community and place. Let yourself be WOWed by a New England Autumn!”

Have an awesome Mountain Day, wherever you are. I certainly intend to.

Ahh, to be young, carefree, and enjoying a beautiful day of hiking in Williamstown, instead of sitting here watching my assets evaporate, wondering if there is any end in sight …

Feeling exactly the same way, Jeff. Egads, we lost an irretrievable chunk to Lehman, and now…

Hey Will and everyone else at Williams, Happy Mountain Day to you! Get some pure oxygen into those fine, young minds. I hear it enables clear thinking…something we need more of on this planet.

The day went wonderfully, highlighted by a beautiful rendition of Will Smith’s “Fresh Prince” intro rap by the Waterstreeeters.
