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.

    WU is a good lilberal arts school with some decent to even great professors. However science majors get the short end of the stick. The school likes to allure students with a sense of community and family however once you get there you'll soon find out if you don't fit in with the norm you'll get ostracized. The maturity level of some of the student body is also below high school level. I have more drama here then i did in high school

    Willamette University is in the capital of Oregon, which is a very good thing for the education of their students. The students get to interact with the state government, which is a very helpful learning tool. Not to mention, the student-run coffee shop is totally amazing!

    Willamette is by far the friendliest campus I visited while college touring. Also, everyone, from the professors to the admissions staff to the students, genuinely wants you to succeed and thrive. Finally, its location is ideal for almost any profession, particularly for those looking towards politics or medicine.

    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.
