4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that the classes and professors are all great, and there are of course different professors and classes that may be boring, but the majority of the classes are interesting and fun even though you may not have thought so.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The on campus jobs are very difficult to get, since some jobs can have up to 70 applicants at a time, but the career center is very helpful since they look over your resume and they also conduct mock interviews.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus safety has made more steps to make the campus more safe such as allowing students to carry pepper spray, but one of the dorms was broken into during the first semester.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live on campus, you can live in a place where there are many people who want to socialize or live in a place where everyone chills in their own room.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life is pretty average: the sororities have their own houses on campus, and the fraternities do not really have houses. They have parties sometimes, but there is no judgement if you do or do not join a greek organization.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics program is open for everyone to go to, and you are not necessarily pressured to go to any. They offer some free games to support the Portland Timbers, and the athletic facilities are top notch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The enthusiam that the professors at Willamette University is great, especially when they discuss their different studies, whether it was studying a lesbian commune in oregon or writing an honors thesis regarding children and psychology.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: For the most part things are really nice and the buildings are kept up.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is fine and rather accessible to everyone

3 College Junior

Athletics: The facilities are okay but the school spirit is only okay.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus feels safe but some of the resources feel like they pretend to care but don't really.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think it depends on how social you are. If you're extroverted, it's easier to meet a lot of people but introverts have a harder time.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think if you're a politics or econ major, you have a lot of options but if you're not pre law or business, it's harder.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing at Willamette depends where you are. In Belknap, the atmosphere is okay but the people I live with aren't very friendly because they're all on the baseball team and already kind of a clique. It's really close to all my classes. I can leave 3 minutes before a class and get there early. It's really easy.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is really chill. It's not too clique-y and you sometimes can't even tell that girls are in a sorority. Though Alpha Chi Omega is seen as the brattiest sorority and fits the stereotypes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: They're fine but I don't use them much.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of white people who are from small towns and Salem sucks.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I might have lucked out but I am in a double that is the size of two singles with a wall knocked down. I have more space here than I do at home.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The IM's are really big of campus which is kinda fun because it makes it a lot less intense of an atmosphere at games. Everyone's just there to have a good time and anyone can join.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, it all depends on the kinds of teachers and classes you take. There are some teacher's I've had who are super enthusiastic about their subject but are awful teachers and visa-versa. The people here are all really nice. If you don't like rain though this is not the place for you.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think the dorm I live in is the best on campus. My room has plenty of space (I have one roommate) and there's a laundry room, vending machine, and full kitchen on my floor. Also, the bathroom's right next to my room (easy access) and there's hardly ever anyone in it. There's also a cafe open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday on the first floor of the building so I don't have to leave to get food (which is great for when it's cold and raining). Also, all the rooms have there own personal air conditioning and heater that you can control for your individual room for no extra cost! Also there's a pool right next to the building that's open in the spring/ summer.

Athletics: A lot of people are involved in athletics on campus and even those, like myself, who aren't officially involved in any sports, the gym is great and open to all students and there are plenty of recreational sports classes and clubs to join.

Greek Life: I don't participate in or follow Greek Life on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel generally okay when walking around so long as there are still other people outside. If I was walking with absolutely no one around I'd be more nervous.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are definitely smaller than at my public high school or even my middle and elementary schools!

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.
