Wellness Class Guidelines

Williams is committed to providing effective wellness programming for its faculty and staff. We continue to evaluate our wellness programs to ensure they meet the needs of the Williams College community and our goals for providing programs in the most cost-beneficial manner possible.

As of  September 1, 2009 access to all Wellness programs including those held in Lasell Gym, Chandler Athletic Center (includes the Spin Room), and Greylock/CTD Dance Studio will be limited to those with valid Williams College ID’s or current recreational membership ID’s. If you are a resident of Williamstown please contact Jill Mendel, Accounting Assistant, Controller’s Office 597-4127 for membership information.

The following are the guidelines for Wellness programs:

• Pre-registration of a minimum of 10 participants is required (unless otherwise noted).
• Preference will be given to Williams College employees.
• 80% of the participants must be Williams College employees or a spouse/partner of a Williams employee.
