Jump Start

August 15-20, 2015

2015 program registration will open in June.

If you just can't wait to get to college, Willamette invites you to "begin before the beginning." These Jump Start opportunities - NSOCO, Ohana, and Steppin' Out - will enable you to meet other new students, explore the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest and lend a helping hand in your new community in a smaller, more intimate setting before the Opening Days orientation involving all new students.
