Williams is like a second family to me. They have helped me out so much in my short time! There is always someone with a smile walking around campus, the teachers know you by your name and not just some number and there’s always people there for you if you are in need. The campus is absolutely beautiful all year around and very clean and nice! The people here push you to be your best and always are there for you!

Williams was my home for 4 years. The faculty and staff are top-notch. They are there to help if you need them. You are taught by proffessors and not grad assistants. I grew academically, athletically, and spiritually during my time there. If you’re looking to go to college to party and goof off, go somewhere else. If you want to grow in your field, skill, and relationship with God, this is the place for you!
Williams Baptist College is a great college. The campus ministry is very active in helping students live out their lifes for Christ. It has helped me develop a closer relationship with the Lord, along with many kids my age. Sometimes, it feels as if I’m back at church camp with all of my friends, which was a ton of fun! From the amazing professors who are available to help students one on one to the athletic diversity that makes cheering and supporting so much more fun, Williams has helped me adjust from high school to college with no trouble. I would recommend Williams Baptist to any student looking for a small college that wants to build a closer relationship with God, while achieving an academic degree.
