  • 写文书 At Williams we believe that bringing together students and professors in small groups produces extraordinary academic outcomes. Our distinctive Oxford-style tutorial classes---in which two students are guided by a professor in deep exploration of a single topic---are a prime example. Each week the students take turns developing independent work---an essay, a problem set, a piece of art---and critiquing their partner's work. Focused on close reading, writing, and oral defense of ideas, more than 60 tutorials a year are offered across the curriculum, with titles like Aesthetic Outrage, Financial Crises: Causes and Cures, and Genome Sciences: At the Cutting Edge. Imagine yourself in a tutorial at Williams. Of anyone in the world, whom would you choose to be your partner in the class, and why?
  • 写文书 Each Sunday night, in a tradition called Storytime, students, faculty and staff gather to hear a fellow community member relate a brief story from their life (and to munch on the storyteller's favorite homemade cookies). What story would you share? What lessons have you drawn from that story, and how would those lessons inform your time at Williams?
  • 写文书 Every first-year student at Williams lives in an Entry---a thoughtfully constructed microcosm of the student community that's a defining part of the Williams experience. From the moment they arrive, students find themselves in what's likely the most diverse collection of backgrounds, perspectives and interests they've ever encountered. What might differentiate you from the 19 other first-year students in an entry? What perspective(s) would you add to the conversation with your peers?

翻译:

  • 在威廉姆斯,我们相信将学生和教授置于小群体中会产生非同寻常的学术成果。我们独特的牛津式小班课(两名学生由一位教授带领深入探索一个课题)是一个极好的例子。每周两位学生要轮流完成作业(可以是一份随笔、一份练习题或一副艺术创作)和评价对方的作业。专注于细致的观点阅读、写作和答辩,每年有60多门(去年是70)这样课程可供选择,囊括了教学大纲的方方面面,一些课程名称有美学失格、金融危机:原因和解决之道与基因组科学:领域前沿。如果你参加我校的小班课,你会希望谁做你的搭档?为什么?你可以选择世界上任何一个人。
  • 每周日晚,学生和教职员工会举办故事会,分享某人的简短人生故事(并大吃特吃自制饼干)。你会讲一个什么故事?从这个故事里你得到了什么教训,这些教训又会给你在威廉姆斯的大学生涯何种提示?
  • 每一位我校新生都会被分到一个小班里——这是学生社区的一个精心构建的小单元,也是我校学习体验的重要部分。在来到学校的那一刻,学生们将发觉他们身处可能是有生以来最多元化的背景、观点和兴趣的集合之中。你与你小班中的其他十九位新生可能有什么不同?你可能经由对话给你的同伴们带来什么新观点?
