George Williams College is a living learning lab — the ideal setting for an integrated, experiential education. Here students graduate with a resume, not just a diploma. The holistic, liberal arts curriculum gets students out of the classroom, learning by doing. The picturesque Williams Bay, Wisconsin setting (just two hours from downtown Chicago and one hour from Milwaukee or Madison, Wisconsin) offers numerous opportunities for volunteerism, internships, and field experiences ventures — key experiences sought by employers (350 Constance Blvd., Williams Bay, WI, 53191). Small class sizes and a close-knit community ensure personal attention from professors and staff members and a close bond with classmates. The George Williams community connects students with the networks and resources they need to achieve their personal and professional goals. In fulfilling the passions of each individual within the community, George Williams College works to advance creativity, global awareness, diversity of thought, and societal well-being.
The historic buildings and student life on the GWC campus have been reinvigorated by the return of traditional first-year students to the campus in fall 2012. This represented the college’s first class of traditional undergraduate students since the affiliation of GWC and AU. The buildings that were once used for camp have been given new purpose for academic and Conference Center use with the evolution from camp to campus.
