This year, Williams ranks fourth among all small colleges and universities in terms of sending grads into the Peace Corps.  This is particularly impressive when you consider that all of the schools Williams is tied with or ranked below have substantially larger student bodies.  Williams ranked fifteenth on the same measure last year, and again, all but a few of the institutions ranked above Williams are far larger in size.  I noted the conspicuous absence of both Amherst and Swarthmore from the top 25 each year … no big surprise from the progeny of noted war-monger Lord Jeffrey, but the institution with Quaker roots needs to seriously step it up.  Read more about Williams and the Peace Corps here.
