Tuition Freedom Day

On March 17th, members of the Willamette community came together to celebrate and thank donors for their needed and appreciated gifts.

Tuition Freedom Day recognizes the point when support from Willamette’s generous donors would cover the cost of educating and providing for Willamette students for the remainder of the academic year. On Tuition Freedom Day, members of the Willamette community come together to recognize and celebrate the donors who support us by writing "Thank You" notes to donors.

This year, we wrote hundreds of thank you notes to our donors and enjoyed delicious Willamette-themed cupcakes. Thank you to everyone who participated in this fun and important celebration!
