4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most professors are very willing to help. If you are not able to make it to office hours, most professors are willing to make an appointment and many more simply have an open door policy.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school really does seem concerned about student safety. There is an ongoing effort to keep students safe and I feel that campus security is quite vigilant. They seem to work very cooperatively with local law enforcement. There was one break in of a dorm, that I am aware of last year. There have also been intruders into the law library that have stolen students personal belongings.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network for the law school is strong in Oregon and every alum I have met has been willing to bend over backwards to help out with job prospects or tips on getting through law school. The placement office has great relationships with local employers and with alumni throughout the country. The job hunting process will really be what you make of it and who you are willing to reach out to. They will meet you halfway, you just have to want it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There are athletic teams at the school, however it is a small liberal arts school with little emphasis on sports. The school gym is all right for non-athletes, but the pool is open odd hours that are inconvenient for regular students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed how supportive and helpful the research librarians at Willamette University College of Law have been. They are really willing to sit with you and help you find your way through murky research, to clarify research queries, or to just lend a hand in figuring out where to start on a specific topic. I recommend their services to everyone.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Many students are apart of Greek life but those who are not do not feel alienated from those students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Although I am not an athlete I can appreciate the efforts and pride the school has for the sports program.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has been immensely helpful in the application process for college as well as very generous in their financial aid packages. They are willing to work with you because they care about you as an individual.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Small classroom sizes, great professors, intellectually stimulating courses, and enough variety to appease any (or most) student(s).

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: High quality career center, many internship opportunities, and a great alumni network.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety, WEMS, and Bishop Wellness Center provide assistance to anyone in need. With counseling services, safety measures, and student EMTs, students feel safe and feel that the school is providing help in any ways they can.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorm life at Willamette can really help a student find their group. Students rally with their respective dorm, and the CM's/RA's throw parties for the residents.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek Life, but from what I have seen, it is an important aspect of WU. Greek Life provides a place for people to feel comfortable with a "family" of their own. There are many annual fundraisers and awareness events that Greek Life is involved with. It's an integral part of the WU community.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are very important to Willamette, as is showcased in the gym equipped with a pool, two locker rooms, two basketball courts, myriad classrooms and offices, a medical assistance room, a weight room, and a workout room with two multipurpose rooms. The students and faculty alike have a lot of school spirit and spunk when it comes to athletics - whether that be varsity or intramural.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Th graduation requirements make sure that you take a variety of courses and really develop you intelligence in multiple fields. The courses are challenging and interesting.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The degree from Willamette University holds a lot of value especially in the Pacific North West. The school has a reputation for being challenging so everyone knows that you are a valuable asset.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are many support groups on campus. There are also safe ride options to leave from parties. Also, there are always groups of people walking together to leave parties safely.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The campus housing is very nice. I lived in the dorms all last year and absolutely loved them. We had a dining hall right below us and a balcony out front. The rooms were very spacious and had a lot of built in storage.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is not extremely big at this school however they do provide a lot of benefit to the community and are very considerate with each other. Unlike movies, the Frat members are nice and outgoing, not looking to stab you in the back

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a soccer player for the university, it is great. The facilities are amazing and all brand new with a great coaching staff and physical therapy team to ensure that athletes are performing at their optimum level

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Willamette is a great educational opportunity with various ways for their students to succeed. The small class sizes allow students to create great relationships with both fellow students and professors. Every student is out there looking to have a great time as well. You will find your best friend at this school and you will find people of every kind living in a happy and engaging community.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small and you have the ability to take an array of classes with interesting subjects.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since the campus is in such close proximity to the state capital building, there are great internship opportunities and the school staff is more than happy to assist students in this process.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Since the campus is small, it's relatively easy to feel safe. You're always about a five minute walk away from your dorm and can always find someone to walk with you if you are feeling unsafe.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are much more spacious and more visually appealing than the dorms of many other colleges in the area.

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.
