Video

We use video as a way to convey the diverse Williams narrative of people, place, and experience. You can see some of our recent work here, and browse our entire collection of videos on the college’s YouTube Channel. If you’re a member of the Williams community with an idea for a video, please contact our creative services director, Meike Kaan. Likewise, if you’re a student with an interest in video and multimedia, or if you have a Williams-related video you’d like us to upload to the college’s YouTube Channel, please be in touch.

The Communications Office helps share large-scale events like Commencement with the wider world through live-streaming and/or video capture, though we’re not equipped as a media services operation to record lectures and performances on a regular basis. If your department or office is looking to hire a videographer, the creative services team may be able to help you find a local vendor.

For members of the media seeking to videotape or take photos on campus, please see our media relations policies.

    Teach It Forward: The Campaign for Williams

    Teach It Forward: The Campaign for Williams

    In October 2015, Williams launched the public phase of the most ambitious comprehensive fundraising campaign in the college’s history. The Teach It Forward campaign seeks to unite the Williams community around a shared vision for the college’s future, building support for its enduring liberal arts values and evolving student and faculty populations as, together, we answer the fundamental questions, “Who will we be?” “How will we teach and learn?” and “What difference will we make?”

    A New Weston - Williams

    A New Weston - Williams

    The Weston Athletic Complex at Williams College, which includes Lee Track, Williamson Field, and Farley-Lamb Field, was dedicated on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014. The complex fosters Williams’ approach to athletics—with its focus on broad participation and excellence within Division 3—and puts a greater emphasis on green design and environmental stewardship. The new Weston includes a grandstand that seats 1,400, a concessions stand, restrooms, and lighted turf fields. A team support building between the two fields provides much-needed facilities for athletes and coaches.
