Helping your student find the right fit

We value the relationships we’ve cultivated with counselors from across the country. Our goal is the same as yours: helping students choose the college that aligns most closely with their personal style, academic interests and professional goals.

Willamette is a great choice for high-achieving students who thrive in a close-knit learning environment. Students in every major collaborate with professors on cutting-edge research and meaningful work, and they forge lasting friendships in a rich array of activities outside the classroom.

We hope the resources below will give you a greater sense of our academic and social community. Please feel free to contact us at bearcat@willamette.edu or 503-370-6303 if you have any questions.
