Willamette University claims to be the first university in the West. Some 2,500 students are enrolled in the private, co-educational liberal arts school that offers undergraduate degrees in nearly 50 fields (politics, biology, English, psychology, and economics are among the most pursued majors) and graduate degrees in business, law, and education. The university has a student to faculty ratio of 10 to 1. Founded in the early days of the Oregon Territory by missionary Jason Lee as a school for Native American children, Willamette University was established in 1842.
