Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Willamette University is an excellent university to study Political Science at. Across the street from the Oregon State Capital, it offers many opportunities for students to mingle with state senators, house members, and lobbyists. Although it doesn't offer a cheap tuition, the teachers in the Politics department are kind, willing to meet and mentor you through your major and teach you the many aspects of politics, theoretical and realistic.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Expect to engage with a curriculum and peers that challenge you to think critically. You will learn to harness theoretical and technical concepts and use these to educate, and empower others. The faculty invest in students through personal guidance.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

I graduated from Willamette University with a Bachelors degree in Biology. Willamette was the best possible place for me to have pursued an undergraduate education because I gained much more than an education in Biology. My experiences at WU showed me how important all aspects of education are. I learned the subject matter, but I also gained many mentors and cheerleaders in my life. The support that I was shown by my coaches and professors was never-ending. These relationships were more valuable than my study skills, ability to read a scientific article, or ability to do a research project. While all of the other skills that I gained in my field are important, I do not think that I would have been successful without the guidance of my mentors. This insight into education is priceless because it shows the importance of teachers in education. The leadership position that teachers are placed in gives them the opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of their students. It is interesting to reflect back on my experiences in the classroom and think about them from the perspective of the teacher or professor. I am fortunate to have built relationships with many great educators and they have inspired me to pursue my goal of making the difference that they made in my life in the lives of future students.

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.
