New London Scholars

Williams students benefit greatly from the School’s connection with Connecticut College. The school makes use of a number of the College’s facilities, and selected students are able to take courses at the College in their senior year through the New London Scholars program.

Seniors have taken courses ranging from Astronomy, Russian, Chinese to Electroacoustic Music/Sound Design and Anthropology. In turn, Connecticut College students can pair with Williams’ faculty as teaching interns.


The four members of the Class of 2014 selected to participate in the 2013-14 New London Scholars program (and the courses they will be taking) include:

  • Petra Elfstrom (Spanish)
  • Olivia Parker (Intermediate Dance)
  • Blake Wronski (Intermediate Dance)
  • Wendi Zhang (Multivariable Calculus)
