A question from College Confidential.

Computer Science at Williams

a pretty simple question…how good is the computer science program at williams?

I cannot tell anything from the department webpage. In general LAC cs depts are not as good or respected as most universities, but I know Williams tends to be the exception to many rules.

There is little doubt that the Williams Math/Stat Department is one of, if not the, best among LACs. But I don’t know anything about how we compare on Computer Science. I have heard good things about various professors (shout out to my fan Professor Dudley Bailey) but also complaints that the department is too theoretical.

Informed opinions welcome.
