'93 Celebrates 25

Join us in Williamstown June 7-10, 2018

Get ready to reconnect with friends and classmates in the Purple Valley.  Whether you’ve come to every reunion or haven’t set foot on campus since graduation, we hope you’ll join us for a wonderful weekend.

  • Reunion Weekend

    Registration will open in mid-March 2018. At that time you will also be able to reserve dorm rooms for the weekend.  If you prefer to stay off-campus, a list of hotels is here.

    While events are still to be finalized and more will be added as we get closer, this '93 Reunion Schedule will give you a sense of activities for the weekend.

  • Reunion Activities for Kids

    Friday evening is a casual dinner buffet for the whole family under the tent on Poker Flats with games and activities available on the lawn, weather permitting. (If rain forces us indoors to the Towne Field House, there will be organized activities there, too.)

    On Saturday there is a separate 25th kids dinner and activities supervised by counselors at the Williamstown Youth Center (WYC), 66 School Street. Parents should plan to check-in their children at WYC at 5:00pm (as well as sign waivers and permission slips – all ages). Dinner starts at 5:00pm. Following dinner, kids will be divided into groups by age and interest. Several choices will be available:
    • Arts & crafts
    • Outdoor (weather permitting) playground and games like basketball, tetherball, Capture the Flag, etc.
    • Movies on large screen TV
    • Games like dodgeball in the indoor gym
    • Foosball, pool or ping pong
    • Quiet time in the Learning Center or the Computer Lab
    • Walk to Images Cinema on Spring Street for a movie
    • Trip to Ramblewild for kids 12 and older (see Teen section below)
    WYC counselors will be in charge of each of the groups and a 25th staff person will be on hand at WYC. Groups leaving WYC will compile a list with the name of each child who is away from WYC. Parents are expected to pick up their child(ren) by 11:00pm.

    On Saturday a group of teens who have pre-registered will go to Ramblewild ropes course, 5:30-10:00pm. Parents of teens going to Ramblewild need to check-in their child(ren) promptly at 5:00pm, so teens can eat and leave on the 5:30pm bus. The bus will not wait!

    Teens at WYC will be able to enjoy their own space in WYC. Following dinner, teens can choose from the range of activities above or play Xbox (for teens 12 and older) in the Teen room.

    You can find a list of children's activities for all reunion classes on Saturday here.

  • Class Book

    Each 25th reunion class produces a book featuring autobiographical essays from its members. The book is conceived and edited by the Class Book Committee and often includes historical photos, comments from the president, and essays written by members of the class. This keepsake is sent in the spring, prior to Reunion Weekend, to all members of the class, regardless of whether they plan to attend reunion. The 25th Reunion Office oversees and guides this project to completion.

     The deadline for personal submissions for 1993's Class Book was November 30, 2017. If you missed this deadline please contact Conny Isby at [email protected] or (413) 597 4208 to see if it's possible to still fit yours in.

    ** We are still accepting nostalgia photos as well as remembrances for deceased members of the Class of '93.

  • About the Class Gift

    This year, spearheaded by the ’93 Leadership Committee and the Alumni Fund agent team, the Class of  ’93 will seek continued support for the Alumni Fund and will also be supporting the  Class of 1993 Fund for Integrative Wellbeing, providing Williams with an opportunity to innovate and lead in the area of student mental health services, transforming it into a core competency of Williams – helping students really thrive, not just survive, in a vibrant and challenging academic environment.

    Over the years, recent 25th classes have made gifts to the college ranging from $2 million to $10 million that have helped to fund initiatives such as faculty endowment, scholarships, new construction and building renovations.

    Gifts and pledges to the Class of 1993 Fund for Integrative Wellbeing and to the Alumni Fund will count toward the 25th Reunion Fund total. The magnitude of individual gifts varies, based on each donor’s financial capacity and his or her inclination to give to Williams. Nonetheless, most class members who participate in the 25th Reunion Fund stretch to make the largest commitment they have ever considered to Williams.

    What counts and how does crediting work?
