Getting Involved

The life of the Willamette student is active, thought-provoking, focused on community and fun — in the classroom and out. 

A coffee date at the Bistro can turn into an impromptu discussion and quasi study session for your Environmental Ethics class. While cheering the Bearcats to victory on the football field, you may find yourself seated between a die-hard alumnus and an equally committed English professor.

Willamette offers more than 100 student clubs in addition to numerous athletic, leadership and service opportunities — and if you still can't find one that fits you, it's easy to start your own. Just ask the students who created Zena Farm or the Bike Shop.

As you explore your passions — whether you are dancing in the annual luau or debating the merits of Mediterranean literature — you will find an enthusiastic network of fans and fellow participants among the other students, faculty, staff and alumni.
