I had the pleasure of being toured around the university and it was magical. There was wildlife roaming around, nutria(?), big gopher looking creatures, birds, etc. Truly a gem of place in Salem.

Traditional college with an Ivy League flavor. Fun to walk the campus. Especially when school is in. Have coffee, perhaps lunch. Watch the students. Wander the bookstore and grimace about the cost of books. Old college grads perspective.

Willamette University is more than just an institute of learning. This is a very worthwhile stop for anyone in Salem. The campus is very pretty, with a shallow creek running through it, many green spaces for such a small college, and good architecture. Stop by...More

Has the feel of a much older university. Well thought out grid, not like a rabbits warren. Parking and tree lined strolls between buildings. Friendly students, workmen and administrators, every one seems to love it here. Going back for the museum and attractions around campus...More
