Frosh Nosh at Food Fair
In an effort to get the Williams College Class of 2017 acquainted with their local surroundings, the Office of Student Life and local Spring Street merchants came together to create the Spring Street Food Fair.
Nearly three hundred first-year students filled Spring Street last Thursday to take part in sampling foods from participating restaurants and visit shops. Each participating restaurant created samplings from $1 to $3 for the students to purchase. The event generated over $3,300 for the Spring Street restaurants.
The event was deemed a success for getting the frosh onto the street and familiar with what is available so close to campus, and also in generating income for local restaurants. It is anticipated that this will be the first of many Spring Street Food Fairs.
