From Record Editor-In-Chief Samuel Wolf ’21:

For us at the Record, as for the rest of the Williams community, the past several months have been tumultuous. Since we departed campus, scattering ourselves around the country and globe, the Record board has been wrestling with how to provide trustworthy and compassionate journalism during a trying time.

Much will happen this summer, from the graduation of our seniors into an unstable job market, to the acceptance of rising first-years who face an unpredictable environment, to the work of several committees to reach a decision on the fall semester. We will continue to shed light on these stories, and we hope to be a consistent and reliable resource to all community members.

Over the summer, our coverage will re-center primarily around breaking news and investigative pieces. We hope in particular that our work will help elucidate the process and outcome of the administration’s deliberations on the fall 2020 semester, and, as always, we welcome your thoughts and feedback. If you have any critiques, questions, or leads, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at

As a close reader of the Record for many years, I think that this spring’s reporting and writing have been excellent, the best that I have seen in more than a decade. Kudos to all involved! I will reach out to Wolf and see if he wants to follow up on some juicy leads . . .
