Hard to believe that our newsletter is celebrating its fifteenth birthday. We believe that it's the oldest online department newsletter at Williams and still the best!
I draft this against the backdrop of the massive renovation of Stetson Hall and construction of the new main library (New Sawyer Library?) that will be connected to it. If you're curious about this phase of the project, you can eyeball the state of construction using the project's webcam. We're now less than two years from move-in, which will be followed by the deconstruction and removal of Sawyer, a building whose disappearance will be lamented by few. And if you've wondered about what the off-campus Library Shelving Facility looks like inside, check out this image, which I'm tempted to label "The Inhuman Moment," although the LSF is of course a quintessentially human creation.
We've got some new faces in the ANSO faculty roster, and the program's enrollments are stronger than ever.
We always welcome news from former students, so by all means drop a line to anyone in the department. Let us know what you're up to.
With best wishes,
Michael F. Brown, Webmaster
