Student Activities

Committed to a well-rounded educational experience, Williamson College of the Trades offers a wide variety of athletic programs and activities to engage and develop its students.

At Williamson, a Student Activity is a college-sponsored, supervised activity and all students must participate in at least one per year.

Sports Activities

Full-Year Activities

Athletics/Sports Activities

All intercollegiate athletics are considered sport activities. Our 8 Varsity sports include Baseball, Basketball, Cross Country, Football, Lacrosse, Soccer, Tennis, Wrestling. To participate in varsity athletic competition, a student must be in good academic standing and have a signed commitment form on file. Participation in Sports Activities also fulfills the college’s physical activity requirement.

The Restall Sports Center directly supports varsity athletic activities and offers a basketball court, an indoor running track, an outdoor tennis court, and other facilities. A wrestling and training facility is located above the Power Plant Shop. Additionally, there is a full outdoor basketball court adjacent to the Lipp Center.

Full-Year Activities

Williamson offers a number of Full-Year Activities outside of athletics. These activities meet in a variety of locations across campus, typically one night per week during the entire academic year. These activities include: Ambassadors, Archery, Artisans, AV Club, Chapel Band, Chess, College Store, E-Sports, Firefighter’s Club, Newspaper, Student Cultural Awareness, Tutoring, Wing Night Team, and Yearbook. Please note that participation in Full-Year Activities DOES NOT fulfill the college’s physical activity requirement and participants must also participate in the Intramural Program.

Intramurals

Intramural sports vary from year-to-year according to demand and have included street hockey, volleyball, basketball, pickle ball, spike ball, dodge ball, ping pong, horseshoes, and ultimate Frisbee.

The Wesley Student Center is available to students, staff, and residents throughout the academic year and is the primary recreation space on the campus. It houses 3 full-sized multi-use courts, a 1/10-mile track, a full weight room, a full cardio room, an Esports suite, a lounge, a gaming room with several game system-ready HD TVs, and 3 different classroom spaces. The Wesley Student Center is open to students when the college is in session.

Student Government

Each class elects a Class President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, who work with a Class Advisor from the faculty/staff. At the beginning of each year, a referendum is conducted in which upperclassmen have the option of calling for a new election for a particular office.

Student Newspaper

The I.V. Monthly is published by and for the students of Williamson. Issues generally feature articles on the following topics: Sports, Shop Notes, Dorm Notes, and information from the administration.

Yearbook

The Mechanic, the student yearbook, is published by the senior class with the help of underclassmen and a staff advisor. The work includes writing, photography, design, and advertising sales.

The Artisans

The Artisans, Williamson’s choral group, performs at college events and in the community.
