Whether it's swag, paraphernalia, etc., some academic departments have it and others don't. Here's a list with tips on getting your own:


  • "Williams Astronomy" T-Shirt: The rarest of them all - you have to become a major or do summer research.


  • Dang, you got nalgenes...Lucky!!!


  • "The Night Before/The Morning After" T-Shirt: Email Professor Smith - they're $15.
  • Cow-in-an-erlenmeyer-flask/"Williams Chemistry: There is no escape" T-Shirt
  • Cow/no escape travel coffee cup


  • Knit Caps: I have no idea how to get one, but they look like the XC and WOC ones.


  • "Williams Mathematics (I'm not digging up all of the symbols!)/|Mathematics|" T-Shirt: Alan Cordova got his by correcting tests for a high school math competition in 2002, but there's probably an easier way to get one.


T-shirts can be purchased from Barb Swanson.

  • "My Life is Finally Normalized" T-Shirt: Made in 2001; probably not too many left.
  • "Williamstown Quality Quantum Mechanics" T-Shirt: Should be a few left.
  • "H-bar" T-Shirt: Currently in vogue in Thompson Physics Laboratory - there's a boxful in the secretary's office.
