Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Willamette University is small and isolated in Oregon's capital, Salem. The college of law will require a student's full attention for three years, but luckily, there are not a distractions in Salem, OR. The professors are top of their field academics and currently practicing judges.

Willamette has been a great investment so far. I can already see the value that the institution is creating for the diverse group of students in the program.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: The program at Willamette is fairly small. This creates a real community in the school. I have heard horror stories from other law schools about such intense competition that other students hide materials in the library in order to gain an advantage. This is not the case at Willamette in my experience. The faculty is also readily available to assist students whenever they have questions or concerns. The Placement Office is also very helpful and works hard to assist students looking for work, whether it is for a clerking position while in school or if it is for a job after graduation. The school is also located across the street from the state capital building, giving the law students great opportunities. Cons: Willamette Law is not very recognizable outside of the Pacific Northwest. This could hinder potential outside of the area because so few know of the program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Small class size with quality professors. Textbooks are included in the tuition price, which helps tremendously with the time to prepare for classes. They are very cognizant of professionals' work/school balance, and the administration is very helpful. The career workshops are useful, and the networking events foster a great community.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

I have just started the program but I think that the schools attention to detail gives their students the edge they need to be a success. The only cons I can think of are the incredibly high price of tuition and the fact that it is in Salem.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors and staff are incredibly dedicated to your education and achievement. They go out of their way to ensure each individual is receiving the education they expected. Being across the street from the state capitol is an incredible resource and opportunity for work in the government, as well as the supreme and appellate courts.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that graduate program here is going to be very much worth it. The tuition is high but you are not only getting an education, but you are also building connections, and getting ready for life itself.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoy my school. The people are nice, the location is great, and overall the faculty is accessible, friendly and knowledgeable. My only real complaint is the workload, especially because I have a family that I hardly ever get to see right now, however, I imagine that this aspect wouldn't be much different at any other law school.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Willamette University was my undergraduate school and I chose to go to the School for International Training in Vermont for my Master's in International Education. Pros: Very focused majors, faculty who have extensive work experience and know their material. Also an internship is a required part of your degree and there is a Career Center that is dedicated to helping students find internships. Cons: The school is situated on a hill in a small town in Vermont. The public transportation does not come up to campus on the weekend.

Willamette University is a great school. Diversity is low in terms of race, ethnicity and culture but the diversity of knowledge is amazing. There are many great classes to take and the professors are always available to students. I am glad that I chose Willamette.
