Purple Happenings

Established July 2021 (previously named ‘Young Professionals’)

The purpose of this group is to connect people who work at Williams (and their partners) with social, professional development, and community-building events. Our offerings will help foster a sense of community, especially for those who have recently joined Williams.

Please complete this form if you are interested in being added to the mailing list for all future activity.

Questions? Contact co-facilitators Caitlin Brown and Bridget Power.

Upcoming Activity:

April 19:   Join the Williams Outing Club (WOC)’s famous Sunrise Hike!

We’ll meet as a Purple Happenings group at the trailhead of Pine Cobble at 6 AM that morning. We should be finished with our hike and back down at the parking lot by 8:30ish AM.

Please check the weather in advance and pack appropriately. You may want to pack an extra layer because it can be windy or chilly at the top. Please avoid wearing sneakers. If you would like to borrow gear, please visit the WOC equipment room. The trail may be muddy and/or wet. It will definitely be rocky! Please pack a water bottle and a cup for a hot drink (a paper one is great!). Sunrise will be at 6:04 that morning.
