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. The tradition of Williams students taking classes at Connecticut College dates back to 1954!

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.
