“When I was first deciding where I wanted to spend my fall semester, I remember reading reviews from past Colby students for Williams-Mystic. One review said that the best part about their WM semester was the aspect of communal living… Having completed my own WM semester, I wholeheartedly agree with my now fellow WM alum. I learned so much and had so many new experiences in Mystic, but what made that all so incredible was the people I did it all with.”
