Fill out this form to get connected with WOC’s trip leader program! There will be an info session shortly to talk through the trip leading process and meet some other folks that are interested in putting trips on WOC’s calendar. We’d love to gauge interest and extend our leader community for the spring! Email Rachel at [log in to unmask] with any questions!!


The WOC Equipment Room will be open M, W, Th, & F by appointment only.  Hours will be 12 -2 and The Equipment Room is open to all members of the Williams community.  Please go to this appointment schedule and sign up for a slot.  Be prepared to show a “CLEARED” status on your CoVerified App when you come for your appointment.  Equipment is due back one week later so sign up for that appointment also.  Unless my snow dance is successful, no skis, sleds, or snowshoes will be loaned out.

We want your feedback on trips! Have you recently gone on a trip and want to give us feedback on COVID-19 precautions and how things went? Fill out our feedback form after your trip so we know how we’re doing!

Open DEI Committee Meetings this semester! Like all WOC board meetings are, DEI Committee Meetings will be open this semester. We’ll be meeting at 7:30 on Mondays (not meeting  3/22 for reading period) at this link. Feel free to join us and/or reach out to Isabel ([log in to unmask]) with any questions!







Weekly sunrise hike (moved to saturday)  “wake up” and down Pine Cobble - sunrise at 6:43AM. Meet on Paresky steps at 6 AM!!  3 mile hike round trip - one thousand foot elevation gain to get your blood flowing and endorphins coursing through your veins!!.   Dress for the weather - chilly and parly sunny- good footwear for a trail that will be muddy, wet and always rocky!  bring a filled water bottle and a cup for hot drinks.  Return to campus by 9:30AM.   Please Contact Scott, [log in to unmask] to reserve a spot!




Puddle Jumping!

Join us for a morning of splashing around! We will be heading down to the Hoosic for some puddle jumping, rock skipping, and general water enjoyment. We will leave at 11am from Paresky steps and return no later than 12:30pm. The walk down to the river is about a mile on a paved road, and another 5 minutes on trails that will be muddy, so dress appropriately! (and note that puddle jumping is very splashy). Email Malcolm at [log in to unmask] with any questions, and sign up here.
