Fun With Trays!

It's Tray Appreciation Week on Willipedia!

Hundreds of tray carvings represent and record a great tradition at Williams. Only on these dining hall mainstays could you find the story of Wilbur and the Cult of Tom -- that is, until Willipedia came along.

Trays are our meal-bearers, our palimpsests, our sleds. Start the much-needed Tray article!

Do I look frightened? My Dad is construction on campus. Sometimes he's a new student center, sometimes the Stetson-Sawyer Project, and sometimes a new strip club, but no matter what he's always around, making you need a helicopter to get dinner points. How would your dad feel if his tuna melt sandwich got cold before he got home from the Snack Bar because my dad had fenced off the entire north side of Route 2? I would guess that he would feel terrible.

January 2007

Paresky Center Opening The Paresky Center is due to open during Winter Carnival of 2007, during which free food will be served during selected hours. It replaces the old Baxter Hall as the student center and a gathering point on campus. The Snack Bar will be moved out of Mission; Grab & Go will relocate from Goodrich; and students will get new mailboxes. Students in the Frosh Quad will no longer have to put up with noisy construction, at least until the Stetson-Sawyer Project starts.
