Last year the popular guide, “Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges,” recognized Willamette for hands-on academic experiences that cultivate critical thinking and creativity; professors dedicated to mentorship; and lively, diverse opportunities for fun and personal growth.

We know what the book says, but now we want to know what you say.

Was it a professor? A course that pushed you beyond your previous limits? A fraternity or sorority? A sports team? Please tell us how WU changed you. We plan to use readers submissions in future communications, including The Scene.

So, what was it about this place?

Ready, set, go.

More background on the book

Willamette won a spot among 40 colleges and universities featured in the book, Colleges that Change Lives. Only five northwest institutions were featured. Willamette was chosen because of the sense of community that is shared between faculty and students alike. When students leave the university, they are better equipped to enter the workforce and develop meaningful lives shaped by diversity, compassion, and critical thinking.
