Alumni Tickets

A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase by Willamette alumni. Regional alumni will receive an email from the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations with instructions on how to purchase tickets.

Book Signing

Mr. Takei has another engagement after the lecture, so we must limit the number of people in the book-signing session to 30.

On Nov. 4, we will draw randomly from those who indicate interest when reserving or purchasing tickets. Please be sure to look for and complete the “I wish to be entered in the drawing to participate in the George Takei Book Signing session” section to enter the drawing. We cannot enter people after the fact. An entry will be added for each ticket you reserve/purchase.

Ticket Distribution

Tickets will not be distributed in advance of the event. All tickets reserved or purchased online will be available for pick up at the Smith Auditorium Box Office beginning at 5:30 p.m. the day of the event.


The Atkinson Lecture will take place in Smith Auditorium, which seats 1,250 people. Seating in Smith is on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., including the Box Office and Will Call.
