Great connections in the political system because the University is across the street from the Capitol Building in Oregon, great economics program and small, personal campus experience.

1) The professors are incredible. They care about the students not the politics of our educational system (unless that is their class subject, then they care deeply about this) and work closely to guarantee success. 2) It's a small school. It's difficult to get lost or left behind either by professors or students. It is easy to reach out to students you may not know, because chances are you both have a common friend. 3) Their Greek life is unlike the Greek communities on larger campuses. I hated the notion of Greek life before attending Willamette and now find myself full of respect for (almost) every member of every chapter on campus because of how dedicated they are to their philanthropies and enriching the lives of those around them.

The quality of education is among the best in the country. It is a small, close-knit campus with only about 3000 students. Its location in Salem, Oregon is only an hour south of Portland and, being the state capital, has plenty of opportunities.

Well first of all, the professors are pretty great; there are many opportunities for students and professors to connect and build strong student-professor relationships. Secondly, the school is moving in the right direction in their mission to incorporate sustainability in their course curriculum and practices. Thirdly, the campus is very student led; that is, there are a lot of leadership opportunities on campus, many opportunities for students to organize, speak their thoughts and ideas, and carry them out.

Willamette is a beautiful campus surrounded by a beautiful city, Salem. The liberal arts education allows for close relationships with professors and students as well as a community committed to excellence. It's prime location, across from the State Capital and 20 miles from the school-owned Zena Forest, is the perfect place for internships and outdoor student research.

Someone should attend Willamette university if they like a small school setting. Big schools can be overwhelming for some students and thus Willamette would be a perfect fit. Secondly, at Willamette the classes are small and your professors really know you. They are able to provide lots of help because of this. And third, there is many opportunities to get involved. Whether it be playing a sport of joining a club, there is always something to do at Willamette.

The academics are top notch, the architecture and layout of the campus is beautiful, and the location next to the Oregon state capitol is excellent

Someone should attend WU if it is what fits them and their wants, it is not for everybody. They should attend if they desire a very close relationship with their peers and professors, if they value their education enough to put it before everything else and are willing to work harder than almost any other student at any other university, and if they are looking to make lifelong connections and friends.
