Value of Willamette

We are one of 40 schools featured in the “Colleges That Change Lives” guidebook for good reason.

Our graduates credit their time at Willamette with providing them the expertise they needed for successful careers and lives as confident, self-directed and engaged global citizens.

Smaller classes, higher-quality teaching and mentoring, more opportunities to apply classroom learning in real-world settings — these are just some of the ways your investment in a Willamette education will provide you with a more enriching college experience. You’ll find myriad opportunities here to discover and follow our passions — whether you go on to a job, prestigious graduate program, national fellowship or public service.
