Willamette welcomes new students

by Marketing and Communications,

Hundreds of students flooded campuses in Salem and Portland last week to move in, attend introductory sessions and discover what their new surroundings have to offer. 

For first-year students in particular, it's been an exciting time to participate in Willamette’s most beloved traditions, such as matriculation and opening convocation.
