Williams College
Neighborhood System 2006-2007

Welcome to Williams College's new housing system. As you may already know, the housing system is comprised of four neighborhoods, each with about a fourth of the student body affiliated or members. The neighborhoods each have a student governance board elected last spring, faculty associates, and staff affiliates. The entire campus is involved. The new housing system is meant to enhance the close-knit community at Williams, foster even more opportunities to get to know each other, and encourage diverse social programming. You are all integral in making the housing system a success. Get involved! Enjoy the events! Communicate with your governance board! Spread your neighborhood pride! This year is a ground breaking year: it is the first year of the new housing system and the beginning of a new Williams tradition. You can contribute in making history at Williams! So enjoy the up-coming year and get to know your neighbors. After all, that is the spirit behind the housing system.
