Charlie - 8/19/2015
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."

Degree: Writing

"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."

Kelsey - 8/22/2014
Degree: Psychology
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."

L - 8/5/2014
Degree: Mathematics
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."

"I wanted to be an actor, so I studied acting in college. What it really helped me do was qualify for the kind of grad school I was interested in at the time and THAT led to more acting work."
