4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The school is located pretty close to our Midtown area which is hipster central. Great food, coffee, and art. Local museums offer student discounts. A large ministry opportunity with the vast gambling found in Reno. Ever expanding malls in town offer great shopping, and again, always bring your student ID in case of a discount.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Portland is an amazing city to go to college in! With plenty of things going on at all hours of the day, there is always something to do. As a college student, I am always searching for cheap or free entertainment and with cheap theaters, McMenamins, and street fairs, I stay busy without spending much money. There is something in Portland for everyone! Dancing, happy hours, breakfast, cultural fairs, art museums, concerts, and other city events.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The main focus in atmosphere is always developing community and they do a fairly good job. Teachers interact with students on a personal level, and I have never felt uncomfortable or frustrated with service. Staff and faculty are constantly striving to make the students experience better.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Portland Is the Best, for Hippies. The 70's never died, they just went to retire in Portland. Coffee shops abound, along with many small stores. Multnomah may be in a bad part of town, but the security guards on campus patrol at all hours. Public transportation in Portland is better than almost anywhere else in the country. No matter what kind of social atmosphere a student prefers, it is available at Multnomah.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Although Multnomah is in a dangerous part of town, Portland is a great place for a college location. I wouldn't advice hanging out right around campus, but when you get into the downtown Portland area there is so much to do! In only a half hour drive you can hike Multnomah Falls, and the Max Train in Portland can basically take you anywhere in the city. There are great places to hike, and Portland is full of unique places like Voodoo Donuts. It's a wonderful location.
