George Williams College

Community

Williams Bay offers myriad outdoor activities in a quaint, small-town setting. It’s also perfectly poised between three urban cities: Chicago (two hours away) and Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin (one hour to each).

Music by the Lake

Each year, we host a summer music festival on campus right off of the lake. With a variety of performances for audiences of all ages such as big band, family programming, classical, musical theatre and contemporary entertainment, Music by the Lake offers a premier musical experience in an intimate lakeside setting.

Area Attractions

The Geneva Lake area has been a popular spot for many visitors over the years. As the second deepest lake in Wisconsin with miles of hiking trails and plenty of shops and restaurants, there is always something to do in the surrounding towns.
