February 3 - February 6, 2022

Hello WOC family! Come check out some of the awesome outdoor events we have going on this weekend. All events are open to the Williams College community.




Good GrEPH! Winter Carnival is back this Feb 17th-19th!

Get excited for the most anticipated event of the season: Winter Carnival! A three day wintery outdoors-focused extravaganza featuring plenty of skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, snowballs fights, contests, performances, food, and more! Tell all your friends, get excited, and check the WOC-ly Calendar and @wocstagram on instagram for updates!

Sign up for your lunch during Winter Carnival! 

The main event of Winter Carnival will take place midday on Friday, February 18th at Mt. Prospect with cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowballs, music, a grill, and more! Lunch will include a grilled feast of burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips, and more! In order to have enough food for everyone for lunch, we need YOUR help!!!!!!!!! 

We need a student ID number for every student eating lunch at Prospect in order to get the correct amount of food from dining services. If you are considering going to Prospect for Winter Carnival on Friday, Feb 18th, please fill out this quick form. If you are not going but know you will have extra swipes that week, you can donate a swipe so we have food for those who forget/aren’t on the meal plan! (You do not need to fill out this form to go to Prospect, but we much prefer to have your ID number so we can get enough food!)
