Take a moment to think about the Willamette community. It is an amazing thing, that a University like Willamette, where thousands of us learn to think for ourselves, exists.

So many young adults learn to think critically about their role in the world, and about their own ability to make the world a better place. That they recognize the words, “not unto ourselves alone are we born” and carry them for the rest of their lives.

Each one of them trying to make the world a better place, along with you.
