    If you can take at least one AES or WGS course, specifically peculiar intimacies they will change your life. Also, all professors are easy to talk to and they are available to have conversations outside class about personal life problems. Everyone is there to help you grow professionally, and personally. USE YOUR RESOURCES!

    Tuition along with books and living expenses comes about to be quite a lot. Meal plans are rather expensive but you have to take me since there are no kitchens in the dorms. The good thing is that the school gives a lot of financial aid.

    You get out of Willamette what you put into it. Academically, you'll be pushed to your limits here and then sometimes a little more. The food is great, and if you fit the culture here (meaning you're hipster or greek) you'll do well.
