Undergraduate Admission

For almost 175 years — longer than Oregon, Washington and California have been states — Willamette has provided rigorous and personalized education to students who have gone on to shape the political, economic, social and artistic character of the Northwest and the world.

We’ve got stellar professors who challenge students to develop new approaches to age-old problems through personalized learning and research projects. Wide-ranging social experiences keep our campus buzzing, and our students are deeply committed to our motto, Non nobis solum nati sumus — Not unto ourselves alone are we born.

All of these characteristics earned us recognition as one of 40 “Colleges That Change Lives.” As you explore our site, you’ll quickly find that we’re a place like no other. Come visit us to experience Willamette for yourself. You might also consider visiting our campus as part of Oregon Private College Week, July 25-29.
