Here wo go, class of 2019!

Gretchen F. Moon, Associate Dean, Professor of EnglishIt’s May 1st. Most of you will graduate from high school in the next month or six weeks. Some of you already have graduated. Someone at your graduation exercises will almost surely mention that you are truly commencing, beginning, setting out, as on a journey. Indeed you are: You’re commencing your college years, and we want that journey to be spectacular!

I want to take this opportunity to share with you some of the points of interest on this journey, and some of your fellow travelers. A Willamette education is highly relational and interactive, and you’ll be traveling this summer with current undergraduates who will help you register, faculty members who will welcome you to College Colloquium, administrators who will guide you through housing and financial aid, your future roommate, Opening Days leaders, coaches—we just can’t wait to meet you!

In about a week, you will receive an email from me with several specific steps you’ll be taking in May and June to prepare for arrival on campus next fall. This letter will include links taking you to further instructions and information, especially around activities that get you enrolled first in College Colloquium and soon thereafter in your other fall classes.

So watch for that ticket to arrive in your inbox soon. Oh, the places we’ll go!
