Williams College is a prestigious liberal arts college located in the Berkshires in rural Massachusetts. Unlike most American universities, which offer lecture- or seminar-based education, Williams College also incorporates a tutorial system similar to Oxford University. With tutorials, students rely heavily on independent work, which is supported and critiqued by peers as well as a guiding professor. Williams College is known for small class sizes and its close-knit community.
