Scholarships: The financial aid process is okay; I've received the aid I needed for education the past few years. It's a large campus, so it takes a while for the paperwork to get through. Your aid packaged might not be processed for a while. Currently, one of my scholarships hasn't been distributed even though it's the middle of the school term.

3 College Junior

Majors: I am a psychology major. There are opportunities for careers around the area and to connect with the faculty since it's an urban campus, but the program is not very helpful in helping you decide what career paths are the best for you and what you need to do to get there. Psychology is a field that could lead to many careers, but there's no clarity in what you can do.

4 College Junior

Majors: Admission to Portland State is not difficult at all since it's a state school, and there are no requirements to being in the psychology program. You are automatically entered when you indicate that as your intended major.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home and commute to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Generally I feel very safe on campus, despite living in downtown Portland where anyone can walk in. Police are easy to find and get ahold of when needed, and all buildings require access badges after certain hours, including housing. There is never much of a problem with strangers causing trouble on campus or with students, but it does make people feel uncomfortable when anyone off the street can walk in and stay in our space.

Computers: Sometimes it's gets pretty full during final weeks, and so it's best to bring own lab top to get word done.

Campus Strictness: lots of crimes has been happening, so it's okay for being in the inner city campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not like in the dorms, and live with my parents so i wouldn't know how the off- campus housing situation is.
