Hello, friends!

Without further ado, we present your newly-elected College Council and Honor and Discipline Committee members.

1,128 (52.4%) Williams students voted in this election, a 22% increase from last year’s Fall turnout. Thank you for participating, and please know that CC will continue working hard to make your college experience better. You do not need to be a member of College Council to initiate a campus improvement project. We will gladly help and/or serve as a resource to you in your endeavors.

College Council and Honor and Discipline Committee are excellent ways to get involved, but there are many more opportunities to be the change you wish to see. Click here for a list of student groups at Williams.

Students at Williams have a voice. The student body has a rich legacy of engagement and service. One of the most consistent and visible vehicles for effecting positive change on campus is College Council. Members of CC better this community by communicating with their peers about various College issues, initiating or supporting campus improvement projects, representing the needs and desires of Williams students to the administration, and taking a critical look at the campus with an eye toward setting and achieving realistic goals for its advancement.
