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 2021 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 60+ 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 first semester of college officially begins.
On behalf of the 2017 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 2017 Opening Days Coordinator and Lead Team,
Holly Walsh ’18, Callum Johnston ’19, Allie Kerkhoff ’19, Katie LaChasse ’19, Jonny Louangrath ‘19
