Drug Safety: A few students partake in smoking weed. The worst problem is cigarette smoking...worst drug ever!

Computers: The computers are slow and the tech never updates them. I am not sure why he gets paid. They supply the lab with one...yes one printer for the whole school which bottle necks everyone when it breaks down...even when it isn't broke down. All the clocks are off on the computers. Internet is slow.

5 College Junior

Diversity: We are a very tolerant college. There is a mix of GBLT, Ethnic mixes, female, male, religious and non religious, trans, and eclectic types.

5 College Junior

Facilities: It is an art school...how much more fun can that get?

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are houses on the campus to live in.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There is a bus line and a mass transit line nearby.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It is an art school, everyone socializes with everyone, that also includes the Gays.

1 College Junior

Athletics: No sports on this campus

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of eating establishments close to the school and on the bus line.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is a cafe on campus. Lots of variety.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a gigantic apartment complex across the street from the college. I hear the landlords suck though. There is a bus line and a mass transit train near the school so traveling from other areas is easy. Tri-met did however cut the bus line running from every 15 minutes to 30 minutes which is a bit inconvenient.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Would love the campus to be smoke free...as the allotted areas for non-smokers is defiled by smokers constantly.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The new president Obama law making college financial aid only 6 years available sucks and discriminates against older students returning back to school to finish their degree.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a great art school. I would do it again!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Directly across from campus are two off-campus apartment complexes. I personally haven't lived in either, but I've heard a couple students who have say that the rent is more expensive than what they think it should be, given that they are students who live less than 1 block from campus, and the apartment complexes advertise their housing especially towards us. In downtown and on the East Side of Portland, housing is pretty easy to find - it can just get pricey in certain neighborhoods. Commuting from the East Side (or from anywhere in Portland) isn't a problem since our public transportation system here, Tri-Met, is so fabulous and offers several modes of transportation and locations.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There isn't any Greek life present on campus. Since our college is an art school, there aren't any kinds of sororities or fraternities on campus, although that doesn't mean that the students don't form close bonds with one another.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a photography major and have been very happy with the program. I've learned a wide range of information and techniques whether I'm working with film and printing in the darkroom or in the digital lab and using state of the art printers. I've been really happy with the instructors as well. They care a lot about the students, show a lot of interest in subjects, and overall want to see people grow and succeed. The photography department is great.

Health & Safety: There isn't any security on campus, but theft is rare and the campus feels very safe.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: This school works hard at being there for students when they need help whether it's academically, financially, or personally. It is a very small school, less than 150 students and that sometimes makes it hard to have official records and enough money to pay additional people who can help find information for you. But, regardless of that, the facilities are great, the education is awesome, the teachers are exceptional, and the overall experience and education is phenomenal which is really important. If you want to pursue a degree in art and craft, come here.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I have seen one of every lifestyle, orientation, religion, race, one of everything on campus. After the first semester you just don't notice anymore because no one else does either. It's just the crowd you have, not a stand out thing. In many ways our average is made up of the extraordinary, so how can it be unusual?

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is a cafe on campus that only takes cash or dining plans, and two health food vending machines. The food is good and brings in out side traffic but not terribly convenient as it is a set timed serving that may not let you get hot food between classes.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers them selves are good and plentiful for the size of the student body. Getting any help is more difficult. The digital tools class is for upper classmen and the tech department is one guy that I can never find when I am looking for him. Printing is easy and fast, wireless coverage is campus wide and high speed. Overall the set up is up to date and well thought out.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: We are all there to grow in our art and grow together. Ethnicity has no role in acceptance.
