On CC and the rest of Sunday

CC tabled at dining halls last Thursday to get information about the programs and departments they valued most. There were about 12-14 items on the sheet, which students could rank. The e-mail announcing the tabling also had a link to an electronic poll.

Also, CC has just appointed the four student members of the Neighborhood Review Committee, which will begin meeting this week. Take it to mean what you will, but most positions on committees aren’t incredibly selective, and CC had to turn down some great applicants. I hope that all students can contribute to this review, even if they, like me, did not apply.

Last, anyone who read my writ from Sunday morning can add an incredibly deep and soulful conversation that helped me discover new aspects of myself, catching up with a friend from last semester, watching several old episodes of a TV show on Hulu, attending the largest gathering of the Feast that I can remember, making cards to send to faculty members about Take Back The Night, helping out at the climbing wall, showing a piece to other musicians so that we could collaborate on performing it in two weeks, writing a song about Spring Break, and figuring out the details of a new project that I feel pretty good about. So that’s 66 hours at Williams for you.

Dear Students,

College Council Wants to Know…
What is most important to your life at Williams?

Tomorrow, Thursday, April 9, College Council representatives will be tabling in the dining halls during dinner to find out your opinion regarding the impending budget cuts.

Please be prepared to fill out a brief survey. You will be asked to decide which Williams programs are most important to your overall college experience. The data collected from these surveys will be presented to the administration. This is a stellar opportunity for the student body to stand up for programs that are important to us.

If you cannot fill out the survey at dinner, please click on the following link to complete the survey online:


If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns on this issue, please feel free to email Lizzy (10ebb) or Mike (10mst).

We look forward to hearing your opinions!


Your College Council

1) Could someone provide a link to, or a copy of, the list of items?

2) Many thanks to Will for this post and others like it. It is very interesting for parents and alumni to see how the College is working to prioritize among its spending options.
