Willamette has been a great school for me, it wasn't my first choice but I think that it has become the best place I could have landed. Willamette has a very accepting environment so the best thing you can do is just be yourself.

    Willamette University is a small private school with a great student to teacher ratio. I felt like the professors really cared for the success of their students, and got to know mine quite well. There are many opportunities available from greek life to club participation and many more.

    Willamette University is a great place to be challenged academically and discover who you are as a student. The students are not pretentious and all different social groups come together to hang out in class and on weekends. The faculty are helpful and supportive and truly want to see all students succeed.

    It's a pretty awesome school. There is a lot of work but the professors are all helpful and actually take the time to get to know you. It's a pretty small campus so if you don't want to know most of the students by halfway through freshman year go somewhere else.

    Willamette University is a challenging place full of opportunities. Students here are known not only for being hardworking but also for being very involved. Additionally, we are a small school so we have a strong sense of community and I feel like our students can actually influence the school's direction.

    This school has changed my life and challenges students to be active in classrooms. Beyond the classroom the school also encourages well-rounded students to participate in everything from sports to social justice issues. They also place a high emphasis on community service and to serve those around us.

    Willamette is composed of three distinct groups: smokers, non-smokers and people who cough when they see you smoke.

    I am pleased with my choice of Willamette University. I like the small classes and professors that interact with the students. Wish my dorm room was bigger and dinning hall food gets old fast.

    It is a wonderful school that presents a challenge even for those who fared well in High School. I myself found myself struggling in that first semester adjusting to the difficulty, but I now have a deeper appreciation for it and wish to be able to continue my studies here. It is because of this that I think Willamette University is by far the best choice out there.
