The leaves are starting to turn in the Berkshires, and migratory frosh will be unloading their parents' cars in front of the Freshman Quad in a matter of days.
Meanwhile, work on New Sawyer Library is moving forward at a furious pace. The building will reach substantial completion early in 2014, although final move-in won't take place until late June. If you look through the construction images, you'll see that one of the most delightful features of the project is the substantial restoration of Stetson Hall, one of the College's iconic buildings.
This issue of ANSO News is likely to be the last in this format. The department expects that our site will receive the same WordPress makeover that nearly all of the Williams College website has undergone over the past 18 months. We are likely to replace ANSO News with a running news link that will allow us to provide news to alumni and friends of the department on a regular basis. We expect that all sixteen years of ANSO News will be archived somewhere in the new website.
Whatever the state of the ANSO website, we continue to welcome news from and visits by former students. Let us know what you're up to.
With best wishes,
Michael F. Brown, Webmaster
