6 Degrees of Separation

Even at a small school like Williams, there’s no way to know absolutely everyone. Let’s face it, there will always be people at Williams who have absolutely nothing in common with you … or do they?

Our mission here is to put the Six Degrees of Separation theory to the test, and to discover whether the students here are more connected than we might have thought.
