Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010

The Willamette Experience was amazing. Classes were small and engaging. Professors were approachable and caring. Campus was compact and beautiful. My time at Willamette prepared me very well for my future graduate studies and career and left me with life-long friends and wonderful memories. I am proud to be a Willamette Alumni.

Degree: Rhetoric and Composition/Writing Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

In general, I loved my college experience, mainly because of the courses I was taking and the friends I made. However, it really didn't seem like I got my money's worth. I don't regret going to Willamette, and I don't wish that I had gone elsewhere, but it sometimes seems like I went to college just to get a degree *somewhere*, because there was almost no help from the staff in my major or at Willamette in general that helped me apply my knowledge to my career goals.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010

Willamette is a fantastic school. I felt very supported by my adviser and the rest of the faculty. I went on to complete a masters degree in public health and felt that I was very prepared for graduate level studies. I use the tools and skills I gained at Willamette on a daily basis and wouldn't trade my experience for anything.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2011

Unnecessarily expensive due to the addition of unneeded administrative positions. Lacking practical application of knowledge taught. Not effectively utilizing school partnerships that are establish(they have a financial engineering program with Columbia University that no one told me about until senior year when I was no longer eligible). The university prides itself on diversity of race/gender/sexual orientation but not thought.

Willamette has an excellent academic program coupled with a wide varieties of cocurriculars. It's easy to find a niche or two where you excel.

Degree: Rhetoric and Composition
Graduation Year: 2013

The campus has a lot of different activities and groups to interact with, and the academics were very solid. In my major, I was not given very much coaching regarding life after college or help finding a job. In general, the career center was fairly useless to me. People are also incredibly engaged in social justice, which can be both a plus and a minus. There is very little diversity in terms of how people think and what kind of people go to Willamette. But it is very easy to find a niche or social group that you fit into.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2009

In general, my educational experience was good. I enjoyed my time at Willamette and learned a lot. I think that research opportunities in the psychology department are lacking, or at least not sufficiently publicized to students. If you are proactive and willing to seek out opportunities, it will be a great place to learn and grow. I went to graduate school straight from Willamette, and I felt very well-prepared for that next step.

Degree: Mathematics, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I had a great experience at Willamette. The professors are kind and very helpful. They truly want you to succeed and are extremely available outside of class. The school has a hearth system where tables are situated near the professors' offices in each department for studying. It is a great system, and creates an environment where the students and professors work very closely. My professors really helped me get where I wanted to be after college, and provided me with many opportunities that helped me achieve my goals. Being a small school, it was also very easy to get involved in research, which was a wonderful experience. Because the school has only undergrads, the students work very closely with the professors in research. This is particularly helpful for those going on to grad school, as research experience is extremely important. The school also has a wonderful community atmosphere, being so small.
