“Watched the runners”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

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!

A gorgeous campus with great ambiance and friendly faces abound. There are some good food options on campus and the grounds are always tidy. Worth a stroll anytime.

“A great classic campus”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

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.

“Secret gardens on Willamette campus”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Stroll through Willamette's lovely campus to discover two special gardens, the long, narrow Martha Springer Botanical Garden behind Sparks Center athletic facility and the tiny Japanese Garden on the S. side of the Arts Bldg. The Springer Garden, is an excellent place for home gardeners to see many species native to Oregon and to get inspiration for garden design. Both gardens are oases of calm near busy 12th and State Streets. Walking across campus from one garden to another is always a pleasure.
