New to Salem?

Welcome! Whether you’re already at Willamette or thinking of coming here, please explore the resources here and get to know more about our community–the one here on campus as well as the broader communities of Salem.


Ask for what you need and offer what you have on this simple social networking site that is just for the Willamette community. Looking for a house to rent? Need to sell your car? Looking for a babysitter? Switchboard it! Here's how to get started:

  1. Sign up. This takes less than a minute!
  2. Set up alerts. Using key words, this feature sends you notification emails when someone posts something of specific interest to you.
  3. Set your preferences. Adjust filters to display specific kinds of "asks" and "offers" you are interested in.
  4. Spread the word and invite others to join! The more people who are on Switchboard, the more powerful our WU network will be.
