4 College Student

Overall Experience: It is a great school with a close and good community within students and professors. There is a lot of help provided as well. But its small and the city wasn't exactly an ideal city I would of liked to be in. The university is a little tougher but its not extremely tough where you can't ever pass.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm really happy with my decision to attend the school I am going to in the Fall. I feel it's the right fit for me and I'm very grateful for the opportunity I am being given. I am the first one in my family to go to college, so this is all very exciting!!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I never even heard of Willamette until my mom made me fill out the free application. My eyes were set on another university (large, public, state-school) and it ended up coming down to the numbers. Even though I had never heard of Willamette, and called it "Will-A-Met" for too long, I can't imagine myself anywhere else. Willamette is truly my home, and I'm so glad that I chose it!

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The all you can eat has horrible food. All bland and tasteless and nasty. Also if you have the meal plan for it, you are essentially paying $17 per meal. Definitely not worth it

3 College Junior

Administration: They're normal. Kind of intimidating especially if they're just there observing but they don't really do anything. They're really slow so if you need something from them, be prepared to wait 30 min sometimes or more

2 College Junior

Scholarships: This school is expensive and I don't get the aid I need to come here. Also they will take away some of your aid if you receive scholarships

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: To dorm I live in, Kaneko, is dirty. there were they same fries on the main stairs for several weeks. I think they're still there.

1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are less than 20 attractive women at the entire school. DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR FUN.

Party Scene: Absolutely horrible. College atmosphere is pathetic. There is HOPEFULLY one good party every weekend and that's if you're lucky.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is horrible. They don't group you with people of similar interests and rooms are tiny.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Its a very safe, secure campus. I love it here!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is fresh & delicious. A lot is grown here

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. My classes are close!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: A lot of dorms could be updated.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It seems like you have to do a lot on your own to find a career based on what some grad students have told me. Also apparently the school likes to take credit for it too.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are not a big thing at Willamette.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Most places close early during the night so there are not much options if you do not have a car.

2 College Junior

Local Area: There is nothing to do close outside or on campus really.

Campus Quality: It would be nice if there were more options of places to eat.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: They have a board that people can post on that are offering off housing campus but they strongly encourage on campus living.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Sometimes the greek life students pass out free items or chant loudly but other then that they are not too noticeable.

Administration: They are not very strict about anything, and don't seem to enforce much, especially underage drinking.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties are relatively the same and most are in small spaces.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

With its small class sizes, robust social life, warm community, and engaging professors, Willamette provides students with a very positive overall experience. Students come to Willamette and develop the passion and skills necessary to succeed in any career they choose.

While current students and even alumni will complain about the parking and lack of nightlife in Salem, most will have fond memories and strong relationships from their time at Willamette. They will remember late nights in the library, dinner at a professor’s house, late-night runs to Muchas Gracias, and the classroom discussions that shaped their worldviews.
