The Williams Record


The Record, Past and Present

The Williams Record, published on Wednesdays during the school year, is the independent student newspaper of Williams College. The paper was founded as The Williams Weekly in 1887 and renamed in 1904. Since it was established, The Record has served as the lead news source for Williams about everything Williams. Today, it is the campus’ only newspaper and serves a community of nearly 3,000 students, faculty, and staff. Its readership also stretches beyond the bounds of the Purple Valley, reaching Williams parents and alumni all over the country, as well as other national subscribers.
