Daily Announcements from Williston Northampton

Experiment in International Living Blogs

The Experiment in International Living offers Williston Northampton students scholarships, made possible through the generosity of an alumna. Williston students have visited countries including Ecuador, France, and Spain.  Each year, a representative from the program also speaks at assembly about travel and scholarship opportunities and previous student participants share their experiences.

This summer, student participants Calvin Ticknor-Swanson ’16  and Billy Ashenden ’17, are also sharing their travel stories through the Experiment in International Living blogs. Find the full blog list here: http://www.experiment.org/read-our-blogs/

Fitness Center Closed in August

Starting Monday, August 10, the Fitness Center will be closed so equipment can be moved out, the floor can be replaced, the mirrors removed, the entire space painted, and new weight lifting equipment installed.  The work is expected to take about one month.  The Fitness Center will re-open on Monday, September 7.  

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we are sure these improvements will be of great benefit for our students when they arrive back on campus in September.
