Opening Days is more than just your typical incoming student orientation. One hundred percent student-run, the program is planned each year by current Willamette students who, just a few years back, were incoming students themselves. This year’s Opening Days Coordinator (that would be me, hello there!) and Lead Team have been working hard to design the program we believe will give the Class of 2022 the best introduction to the Willamette community.
Everything we do during Opening Days is for the purpose of providing incoming students the tools and resources they may need throughout their first semester at Willamette. The Opening Days Leaders are all excited to share their knowledge and experience, as well as serve as a mentors, resources, and friends even after Opening Days comes to an end and the fall semester of college officially begins.
On behalf of the 2018 Opening Days community, we wish you a wonderful year. We are so very excited to welcome you to your new home in August! Mark your calendars, because you know we have!
Your 2018 Opening Days Coordinator and Lead Team,
Maggie Mellecker ‘19, Alexa Anderson ‘20, Mariam Baig ‘19, Nell Crittenden ‘19, Casper Croft ‘20
