Blogger Perspective: With a national title as recently as 2013 and several before that, the tennis history at Williams is rich. When coupled with the support that the town of Williamstown gives the college, you have a very formidable tennis and academics combo. The Ephs womens’ team is a perennial national champion, however the men’s team isn’t too far behind. Much like peers Amherst and Middlebury, Williams is an outstanding but insular New England liberal arts school that competes in what most consider the best tennis conference in the country – the NESCAC. The academics at Williams are second to none as it ranks as the #1 liberal arts school in the country. Under the tutelage of alum Dan Greenberg (Class of ‘08), we would peg the student-athlete experience as more balanced than that of an Amherst or Middlebury. The student-athlete moniker is shifted more toward student, with Williams athletes focusing on excellence in the classroom as well as a perennial top 12 ranking in tennis. That said, Williams still attracts primarily 4-star recruits and is always competitive with the best teams in the country.

Williams tennis draws players from all over the country, but it is traditionally a hot spot for New York and Massachusetts-based junior players with a recent uptick in California as well. Williams provides an excellent balance of academics, tennis and social life while setting students up well for their future. The Williams degree carries significant weight throughout the United States, and we would highly recommend putting Williams at the top of your list if you are 4-star player looking for a strong liberal arts education who has a wide variety of academic interests.
