Celebrate Williams-Mystic with us!

We are eagerly anticipating two upcoming opportunities to celebrate Williams-Mystic — and we hope you can join us!

First, we are honored to be the 2019 recipient of the National Maritime Historical Society Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Maritime Education. We will receive this award on Thursday, May 2 at the National Maritime Awards Dinner at the National Press Club in Washington, DC — and we hope you can join us in person OR from afar!

Second, we’re also delighted to announce that our next Alumni Reunion will be held July 12–14, 2019. We can’t wait to have you join us for a beautiful summer weekend in Mystic! Keep an eye out for more information in the mail, and check wmreunion.org for updates as the date approaches.

It’s quite likely that Williams-Mystic will change you.

You may leave our program with an entirely new outlook on learning, ready to take on new challenges back at your home institution. Some students change majors or alter their career paths. Others apply their profound physical, mental, and emotional growth to their long-held passion—be it science, art, law, medicine, public service—or to their everyday experience of the world. Wherever they go, our alumni remain passionate about not just the ocean but also the world around them.

At Williams-Mystic, you will open your mind to a world of wonder—and also close a door of doubt. An experience like no other, your semester is an opportunity to truly get to know yourself, make profound intellectual connections, establish a deeper outlook, and prepare for the great opportunities life has for you.
