Submit Class Notes

Class notes are a way to share your news with your fellow Bearcats and the Willamette community. Complete the form below to let us know what's new with you!

Willamette University's magazine publication is undergoing a redesign and production will return in Fall 2022 In the meantime, Class Notes and Obituaries are now published online. The same guidelines and caveats to publication apply. See more information below.

Common reasons to submit a class note:
  • You got a new job or promotion
  • You had a baby or adopted a child
  • You got married or entered into an official union
  • You published a book
  • Limit your note to 75 words or less.
  • Limit your note to one event or news item.
  • Submit a note that contains a recent event or development (something that occurred in the past year).
  • Send a photo, and if you do, always identify those in the photo, make sure we can see faces clearly, and make sure to send as large a file as you can. We can't guarantee your photo will be published.
  • Willamette cannot accept submissions on behalf of someone else (Class Notes Only).
  • Willamette reserves the right to edit or omit any information submitted.
  • Willamette does not publish news of engagements, pregnancies or candidacies for office. We’ll be happy to share your good news when the time comes.
  • Willamette does not publish news containing solicitations or fundraising efforts
  • Due to space limitations, we will list Willamette University alumni who are members of a wedding party, but we cannot list all those in attendance. Wedding announcements will be listed under the class year of the person who submitted the class note (for alums marrying other alums), unless otherwise specified.
  • Willamette will list surviving spouse, parents, children, siblings and other Willamette University alumni relations in obituaries unless otherwise requested.
  • Willamette publishes obituaries of alumni (degreed and non-degreed), trustees and current or former faculty.
  • Notes from dual degree alumni (CAS, Law, Atkinson, PNCA or MAT) will be listed by their undergraduate class year, unless otherwise specified. Due to space limitations, we are unable to run news of alumni's children, grandchildren, colleagues and friends — except for birth announcements or if those mentioned are Willamette students or alumni.
