Eph (iːf): A shortened form of “Ephraim”, the first name of Williams College founder Ephraim Williams.
Founded in 1793, Williams College is consistently ranked among the country’s finest undergraduate institutions. The school certainly holds a special place in our hearts here at the hotel.
The Orchards is proud to support Williams athletes (“Ephs”) and their families; our location, just a few blocks’ walk from the College Quad, provides a perfect spot to meet and celebrate Eph victories throughout the school year.
Show your spirit with The Orchards Hotel’s special Williams College vacation offers.
