Health & Wellness

"Adolescents are faced with challenging issues and ethical dilemmas, and they are able to make more appropriate decisions and healthier personal choices when armed with a foundation of knowledge and social skills. These noncognitive abilities, or soft skills, are essential to success as young adults transition to life beyond Williams. As such, our new Health & Wellness initiative aims to create a multi-pronged, age-appropriate plan that will inform students and strengthen their ability to have sound judgment, make good decisions, and articulate their guiding principles." – Macy Kleinfelder, Dean of Student Affairs
