Living an Examined Life Retreat

What is the purpose of your education at Williams College? What are you currently learning, unlearning, and craving to experience and explore? How does your liberal arts experience at Williams connect (or not connect) to the ideas, ambitions, and big questions you have for yourself and the rest of your life?

We invite current Williams students to join us for a one day retreat, Living an Examined Life: Exploring the Purpose of My Education, to explore these questions and more. Hosted by Jen Lazar ‘04, Nandita Batheja ‘12, and the Gaudino Fund, this one-day retreat offers you the opportunity to slow down, reflect, and stretch into what is possible for your educational journey.

This retreat includes delicious catered meals from local restaurants; bottomless cups of coffee and tea; a day off-campus at the beautiful Dewey House on the corner of Southworth St. and Route 2 (transportation support as needed); and a powerful community of alumni and peers committed to deep reflection, inquiry, and exploration.

When: Saturday, February 11th, 2023, 10am-8pm

Where: Dewey House (immediately off-campus on 796 Main Street) 

If you would like to join us, we invite you to fill out a retreat application! The first round of applications will close on December 17, 2022.
