Willamette Makes the List

Washington Post staff writer Jay Mathews asked high school guidance counselors around the country to help him compile a list "of colleges and universities that deserve bigger reputations."

Willamette University is one of the 100 Mathews calls hidden gems, "the lesser known jewels, the wallflower colleges that students fall in love with only after they get to know them."

Listed for fun and not in order of merit, Willamette is in excellent company with schools like Earlham, Bates and Keene State College.
