"W" MARKS THE SPOT Our campus fits the “ruralpolitan” model concept: we’re a sophisticated, liberal arts institution in a rural setting, and we use technology to enhance and exceed the small-town atmosphere.
The Dark Side Coffee House
NEARBY FUN In addition to our on-campus coffee bar and seasonal varsity sporting events, off-campus activities such as movies, malls, bowling, kayaking, fine dining and more are all within about a short 30-min drive.
AND WHERE IT WILL TAKE YOU. Lectures. Life. Lessons. Armor of God. Wisdom of ages. Truth. Knowledge. Skill. Med School. Law School. Hard-knocks. Career. Calling. Dream. Make your mark.
WHEN YOU GROW UP Our students graduate to far-flung fields of industry and enterprise—many go on to post-secondary degrees in medical or law schools. And our academic offerings keep expanding, as in our recent Masters of Teaching program addition.
YOU HAVE A DREAM
Maybe it’s to cure a disease. Perhaps it’s to shape the world through art—or through teaching. Maybe you want to change the world. Invent something. Be an entrepreneur. Make a difference. Your dreams matter to us.

The biggest choices and achievements of your life all start out as small principles taken to heart about faith, truth and purpose. From scholarship to friendship to sportsmanship, life at Williams centers on relationships.
