Willamette lauded in latest ‘Fiske Guide to Colleges’

by University Communications,

“Willamette students remain true to the school motto, ‘Not unto ourselves alone are we born,’” says the “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2018.”

In addition to Willamette University’s emphasis on service, the guide praises Willamette’s numerous undergraduate research opportunities, comprehensive study abroad program, dedicated faculty and dual degree programs that integrate the liberal arts and professional education. Willamette’s proximity to the Oregon State Capitol and Salem Hospital also provides students numerous off-campus learning experiences.

“This is the place where you can grow as a student, leader and person as you pursue your passions,” says a student quoted in the guide.

The guide examines more than 300 colleges and universities in the United States, Great Britain and Canada. Its aim is to present students, parents and guidance counselors with the best schools to consider during their college search.

“Willamette is unabashedly itself,” says another student in the guide. “Community members from all backgrounds feel very comfortable being themselves and embracing who they are.”
