CC will bend over backwards for you. We are proud of College Council and the work that it is doing, and we are confident that it is serving you every day.

WHY SHOULD I RUN FOR COLLEGE COUNCIL?
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.
