About the Northwest 5
The Northwest 5 Colleges Consortium comprises five premier liberal arts colleges in Oregon and Washington:
- Lewis & Clark College – Portland, OR
- Reed College – Portland, OR
- University of Puget Sound – Tacoma, WA
- Whitman College – Walla Walla, WA
- Willamette University – Salem, OR
While each campus is distinctive, we share some common attributes. Each is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Each is largely residential. Each is small by design, allowing for close interaction between students and faculty. And each offers you outstanding academic and cocurricular opportunities.
