We are senior citizens in the community and always enjoy our time at Willamette's campus. We never miss their Christmas choir concert, "Christmas a Hudson Hall."

Great and rigorous MBA program. Beautiful campus with a nice river flowing through the middle of the campus. Soccer field open for the public, but sometime could be occupied by formal matches in which a reservation might be required.

We were a Northwestern regional professional convention, and we met in several of their facilities. They were gracious and hospitable. We ate some of our meals on campus.

We arrived in the late afternoon and needed to kill time before dinner. It was so fun to watch the men's track team doing laps. When they were done, the women's team came out. One very fast female runner was practicing sprints - amazing to see young strong bodies in action!

Not only that plan on having lunch at the Quad. The food is excellent and is affordably priced. Rachel Ray rated the food here very highly during her visit. It is just a short stroll to Bush Pasture Park. This is a beautiful campus across the street from the Oregon State Capitol.
