Willamette University was founded in 1842 and is the oldest college in the west. It is a national liberal arts and sciences university with a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Students come from 35 states and 15 countries. Academic standards are rigorous and more than 50 percent of the student body earns credit abroad before graduation. Approximately 75 percent of undergraduates live on campus. There is one faculty member for every 10.5 students resulting in a personal atmosphere and a close-knit community.

Adjacent to the campus and connected by a sky bridge is the American campus of Willamette’s Japanese sister university—Tokyo International University. Through a resident exchange program, Willamette and TIU students have the opportunity to be paired as roommates on both campuses.

    Willamette University benefits from being located across the street from the state capitol and near other federal, state, county and city offices. The university is also near the downtown area of Salem where there are many shops, restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. The cultural attractions and diversity of Portland, Oregon's largest city, are within 45 miles. The ski slopes of Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachelor are two to three hours' drive away, while Oregon’s beautiful rugged coast is an hour’s drive away. Across the Cascade mountain range lies the high desert of eastern Oregon, with large cattle ranches and rich farmland.

    Willamette students are very active outside of the classroom. The Office of Student Activities supports a variety of student organizations.
