    Visit Willamette virtually and discover what a private college education can do for you.

    Oregon Private College Week is a great time to explore Willamette. You’ll learn about our academic programs, student activities, internship placements and research opportunities. You’ll also find out how scholarships and financial aid can dramatically reduce the cost of a private college education.

    Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, OPCW cannot be held in-person this year. However, we are excited to announce that OPCW 2020 is going virtual! Ten private, independent, nonprofit colleges will each host three, 80-minute virtual visit experiences over this five-day span. During these virtual sessions, each college will offer an informational presentation about admissions, financial aid, and academic programs.
