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

    You are invited to come ask questions and discover why an Oregon private college is right for you during Oregon Private College Week (OPCW)! Sessions are held concurrently on 12 campuses statewide.

    July 25th through July 29th
    9:00am - 11:30am & 2:00pm - 4:30pm

    While visiting Willamette, students and guests will attend an information session that covers topics such as 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. After the information session, you'll be taken on a tour to see our beautiful campus for yourself. 

    Registration closes Friday, July 22, 2022. Willamette University, however, is happy to take walk-ins for each session throughout the week. We only ask that any walk-ins call the Office of Admission at 503-370-6303 to confirm session availability and receive instructions (e.g. parking, check-in, etc.).
