Publication has traditionally been funded through advertising, subscriptions and online contributions; in 2010, however, as the newspaper struggled with structural deficits, College Council granted the Record a subsidy funded by an increase in the Student Activities Tax. If you read the Record regularly but do not hold a subscription, please consider making a contribution to support our continued publication.
If you are a Williams College student you are eligible to join the Record as a member of our editorial or business staff.
