Willamette is too white and there is aSuper BrilliantLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
Willamette is too white and there is a lot of racism and Islamophobia. Ast a West Asian Muslim, I face a lot of microagressions at Willamette as well as blatant racist stereotypes. West Asians are underrepresented and sometimes I feel like I am otherised and excluded by other parts of the Asian community because I am West Asian (Syrian, Lebanese, Yemeni) and because I am a Muslim. Willamette is a bunch of racist white rich kids who like to go hiking and camping and push veganism on others.

There is a good sense of community amongQuite BrightEnglish
There is a good sense of community among the students here, I think. Professors are generally engaged in helping students and providing interesting classes and assistance in academic pursuits. I've only met a couple of professors that really hated me just because. The main downfall of this school is the godawful administration. They completely waste the budget every year (particularly on creating even more administrative positions and crap for the sororities), and they cut funding for important things like student health care, professor salaries, and dorm maintenance thinking we won't notice or complain. The number of sassy emails sent between administrators and student representatives this year alone has been ridiculous. The administration doesn't know how to bring enrollment back up, but they somehow don't realize that cutting their spending on the actual students is making it worse. In summary, the professors are great in general, but the administration will literally make your life so miserable that it's not worth it. Don't come here.
