Before You Arrive

Welcome Class of 2021!

First Days, the official first-year orientation to Williams, will begin on August 28. You will have access to your rooms at 8:00am. We cannot authorize your arrival prior to August 28. (International and First Gen students who have been invited to participate in pre-orientation programming will arrive on August 25).

But first things first. There is much to do before you arrive:

1.  Look for an email from Dean Dave in your personal email account- the one you used through the application process.  There you’ll find a link to activate your network permission and Williams email account in order to use our PeopleSoft and GLOW systems.

2.  Start with PeopleSoft, as that’s where you’ll be able to tell us your housing preferences, register for our EphVentures orientation programs, choose courses, and much, much more.  Many of these forms do have deadlines, so checking in early is a good idea.

3.  If you will be under the age of 18 on August 28 have your parent or guardian fill out the EphVentures Parental Consent Form.

4.  Complete and return the required Health Forms by July 1, and enroll in or waive the Williams health insurance plan by August 1.

5.  Use the GLOW system to complete your Chemistry Placement Survey by June 19 (If enrolling in CHEM 151, 153, 155 in 2015 or the future) and your Quantitative Literacy and Reasoning Assessment (required of alI students) by June 29.
