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.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is supportive of people expressing their individuality, whether through clothing or body mods (hair dye, peircings, tattoos etc,). A lot of people are very involved around campus and many people have different interests. Being busy is the main description I'd give anyone, guy or girl.

Guys & Girls: Some girls are fine but the majority are not

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are lots of jocks and sorority girls which I don't like. There are also a lot of really weird people who I don't connect with at all. But I've found a few people I can connect with.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: A lot of these kids come from wealthy families and can be pretty stuck up, however there are also a lot of really cool people that can play some great music and create some really cool stuff. Not many fat people.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While Willamette students are independent and diverse in their interests, there are a couple types of students that you will routinely run into. The most common student you will meet is the Bearcat "super achiever." Willamette attracts a lot of high-achieving folks who run at full speed all of the time. This student is involved in clubs, Greek life, internships, on-campus jobs, and Residence Life. This student will likely be successful in the classroom and graduate with a resume that will be the envy of his or her high school friends. While the "super achiever" controls the non-academic portions of campus, the "academic students" control the classroom. These students are rarely involved in anything outside of their courses, but their stellar academic performances will grant them access to amazing graduate schools and opportunities such as the Fulbright grant and the Hertz fellowship.

Finally, you will meet the average "college student" who is here to learn and enjoy. The "college student" will do fine in the classroom and be involved on campus, but not to the level of the "academic student" or "super achiever." The "college student" will be the one cheering the loudest at sports events and will be the center of attention at every party. It’s important to note that many students at Willamette fit into all three labels. You will have "academic students" who are very involved with clubs and sports.

Social Scene
Willamette boasts a lot of "Type A" personalities and social butterflies. Overall, the students are friendly, outgoing, and eager to meet new people. Because there is so much going on every night of the week in terms of activities and events, it's easy to meet students who have similar interests as you. Keep in mind that Willamette is a small school. Within your first couple of weeks you will have met almost everyone you will know for the next four years.
Hookups or Relationships?
Willamette lacks a dating scene. Students are either single, hooking up, or in a serious relationship. It is black and white-there is no gray area. Hooking up, which will be defined as anything from kissing to sex, occurs frequently. Unfortunately, everyone will know about it. Willamette is a small school that loves to gossip. If you do manage to find a special someone to whom you wish to commit, he or she has probably already hooked up with your hallmate or that kid from your chemistry lab.
Dress Code
The general Northwest dress code is relaxed and rainproofed. Students tend to pick comfort over fashion. Essential, everyday items that can be found in every Willamette student's closet include: a black fleece zip-up, Willamette hooded sweatshirts, jeans, a windbreaker or rain jacket, Willamette sweats, khakis or cords for presentation days, more jeans, a messenger or canvas bag, and an assortment of ratty, old T-shirts. The T-shirt collection is a key component to the Willamette look. Upon entering as a freshman, you may have one shirt that your parents bought you while visiting the campus. By graduation, more than half of your wardrobe will contain Willamette-related garb. Every club or activity has a corresponding shirt or sweatshirt, especially the Greeks, who make a shirt for every single event. For shoes, students tend to wear flip-flops all year long, even when it is pouring down rain. Other popular footwear includes the fashion-controversial Crocs, hipster-wannabe Converse, outdoorsy Chacos, and UGG boots for the ladies. Overall, Willamette leaves plenty of room for self-expression through the means of fashion. It is more common to dress on the practical, casual, outdoorsy side of fashion where the clothes come from REI, Gap, American Eagle, Old Navy, Target, and any other mainstream, non-obtrusive clothing store. But you will not be ostracized for being expressive and daring with your clothing choices.
