As a first year student, I have enjoyed my experience at Willamette. I really enjoy the academics here- my teachers are easy to talk to and they provide a managable workload. There are issues with some aspects like healthcare because there is discussion of cutting it, but we do have a hospital right across the street.
The students and staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Everyone that I encountered was interested and genuine when they asked about where I was from. The professors were more than willing to answer any questions that I had. The tour guide I had was full knowledge about where each building was. I liked that there were traditions that Willamette has and old superstitions that are taken pretty seriously.
Overall, Willamette offers a unique experience for all its students. They're various opportunities to meet new people and get involve around campus. Being a smaller campus, it can give off a sense of community among all students. This also comes in handy when meeting professor as you can usually get one on one time with them.
As a University in my hometown, I enjoy the antique vibe the school brings out. It cares for its students and the professors are stellar.
The school always tries it's best to help you in almost every form. Medically and financially.
The professors attentively care for their students and genuinely want to help them succeed in what they want to do. That's the thing I love about Willamette. Everyone is a community and we take a step forward together as one.

If I could go back in time the first thing I would tell myself to do is to branch out. I think being part of a college campus is a huge step and going around and getting to know people is so much fun. Another thing would be to be more independent. Its great to have your friends, but being able to get out and be a leader and stand up for yourself is something to be proud of. I would also tell myself to be more involved. If i had really thought about where I was going in life I would do more. I am doing things on campus and in the community now and I love it! Get used to talking to teachers and being ready with questions you may have is another tip. Most of all just have fun with what you do because you will get where you are going with whatever route you take, and do things with a smile :)
fun, friendly, always willing to share
The dating scene. Oh boy. Let's just say Willamette sucks when it comes to dating. Since it is such a small campus it is hard to find guys that you are attracted to, especially since the classes every year seem to get filled with more and more females. Then again there's the whole thing where the "good" men on campus, of course, have girlfriends. Whatever.
It is awesome.
Willamette is a small liberal arts university where the professors and the administration put the success of the student first. It's size is both a curse and a blessing as it keeps the class size small, allowing for student discussion and participation, but can also feel too small. However, Willamette has every kind of extracurricular activity that a larger school has, and you will find friends for life.
The small size of our school makes four years heere really difficult to find new minds or talent. We do have avery talented body, but we all tend to do two or more activities because in order for them to run we need to do them. Everyone seems to know everyone's business. I'm not sure where they would expand, but with a bit more expansion, I believe they'd be able to keep the integrity of the school intact. It is sometimes difficult to compete with other schools when we have such a small pool to draw from.
definately the people. professors and students alike are engaged and proactive.
Rich entitled kids. It is partially true, but not for everyone.
I feel like the staffs ar very unique at Willamette. You have staffs that really care about the students at this university and will do whatever they can to support students.
I wish I had know just what it means to go to such a small school. If you do something good, everyone knows. And if you do something bad--everyone knows. Its's a little claustrophobic at times.
One looking to just attend classes. There is a lot going on here, and many interesting people, so if you like just your tight-knit group of friends, you would be missing out on the Willamette experience. A person can't depend on others to tell them what to do here or what help to receive- the resources are here, but no one is holding the student's hand.
When I brag about my school, I tell them what wonderful professors I have and the wonderful people I have met. I have some fabulous friends especially my roommate. I have learned a lot not only from my professors but my classmates who can sometimes surprise me and give such insightful comments. Also, the campus is gorgeous and can be so inspiring when it rains or shines.
Anyone interested in pursuing a strong liberal arts education will be pleased at Willamette U. While other schools may advocate specialized study, students at Willamette graduate with a diverse toolbelt of knowledge and social awareness Also, Willamette is the place for students willing to take responsibility and drive their academic eperience. Personal motivaton is imperative for a student to take full advantage of the resources Willamette offers. Despite the daily stressors, people on campus are generally friendly, happy people involved in an array of activites and interests. If you wish to nuture your numerous curiousities, Willamette is for you.
The lack of diversity-- everyone's white!
Not really, everyone at our school has a unique identity and is recognized as being unique. There is a lot of environmentalist-type activity from the student body and faculty alike, but that doesn't mean we're all hippies
Willamette Student tend to be very liberal, and there are a lot of new age hippies, because there is a strong focus on sustainability.
My classes very much reflect a liberal arts education. This semester I'm taking Latin Prose, Ancient Middle East History, Close Reading and International Politics. My classes are diverse and mostly discussion based. This makes them very engaging and I feel more invested when I know that I am a part of a class, not merely a person in the classroom.
Not at all. I'm sure your parents would love to hear your voice as often as possible. I call my parents every night. So does my roommate. Other folks call their family once a week or two. It really is up to you, but try to keep in touch with your family as much as possible. It'll make the process easier for them.
