About Me

My name is Sarah Williamson (she/her) and I am the Assistant Dean of Students for Residence Life. Together with other members of the residence life team, we strive to cultivate a sense of belonging and community within the residence hall communities. Through programs, conversations, and even the occasional late-night pizza party, we hope to help students make Widener their home away from home. 

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA, but most recently relocated to the Philadelphia area after living in Washington, D.C. for almost 10 years. With more than 10 years of experience in student affairs, I try to center building connections with others and aiding student in developing sustainable skills to thrive in their academic, health, and well-being in my work.

Advice for New Students

Try something new. Widener is filled with wonderful clubs, organizations, experiences, and events that may be new to you. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. You may find a new hobby, friend, or passion along the way.
