2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The schools policies are confusing, and the faculty doesn't always keep up there end of the bargain in following the complicated grading policy

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There seems to be a lot of casual drug use outside of class, and a pot/hippie culture which is pretty alienating.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: There really is none. When you're at school for something folks will be social, but it's entirely up the the individual to make plans outside of school

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Portland has a lot of food options, but there are not as many choices in the immediate vicinity of the school. There are tacos on division, burgerville and gas station pizza nearby, and some strip clubs to grab food.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I came to birthingway to receive an excellent midwifery education. I do feel that I am getting a good education, but the program leaves much to be desired. The culture of the school is very white and insular, and focus of the education mirrors those values as well. Some of the required intro classes are a waste of time and money. On the positive side, I have learned a lot, am part of a community dedicated to helping fostering midwives, and I think the trajectory of the curriculum makes a lot of sense.

4 College Junior

Academics: Birthingway does not want students to compete with grades; instead, they want students to help each other in order to learn the information well. The workload is heavy and extensive; however, if the life of a woman and her unborn child is in my hands, I want to have a broad range of knowledge in order to care for the mother and her child. Before completing the program, all students are required to commit to an apprenticeship with a preceptor midwife.

College Junior

Athletics: There are no sports at my school, just mothers giving birth to beautiful babies.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aide officers are very accessible and always willing to answer questions. A positive experience over all.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school does not have a formal athletic program, however the students are encouraged to take up yoga and meditation practices to support the demanding schedule and stressful internships. The clinical work itself, built into this program is a work out on many levels!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: We live in a townhouse apartment. A bit run down an old but quaint and charming for a reasonable $900/month. Great hood and easy access to the college! :)

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: At Home – The school is actually a beautiful old house that has been converted into a college. It has some unique and wonderful ambiance! Behind the school is another big, beautiful house that the school uses to operate their lactation clinic which supports the community, by providing free care to mother's in need and fosters learning for the budding student midwife.
