5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Portland has excellent transportation. Its cost efficient and convenient.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health facilities are amazing. Campus feel safe, but statistic and reports reveal that there is at least some danger.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The prices and availability have more to do with the general housing situation in Portland than with the school; still if you are willing to live outside of downtown, the prices are much more reasonable than on campus or off-campus downtown living.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is extremely expensive and inconvenient; given the public transportation options and quality, it makes little sense to keep a car at all.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics are average across the board; knowing how to make the school work for you is important.

4 College Junior

Academics: My major isn't especially popular, but has been good so far.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's pretty weird that this survey assumed I was interested in men, but I suppose they are fine.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Varsity sports are not especially important to student life; however the gym and activities available through it are very popular.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol and marijuana are very noticeable; other drugs are around, but less abundant.

5 College Junior

Weather: If you like the rain, as I do, then Portland is perfect.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far, I am very pleased with my experiences with this school.

College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life is not an important part of campus life.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I hear the dorms are very nice. The rest of the buildings are either well maintained historical spaces or nice newer ones.

5 College Junior

Transportation: Between shuttles, zip-car options, and the bus/tram/train you can get anywhere easily.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Portland has amazing dining options pretty much everywhere close to campus!

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There many stand alone and local restaurants on campus in addition to the cafeteria.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I think parking is the hardest part about living off-campus. It is very costly and the commute can be backed up with traffic any time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I never feel pressured, but I also don't take part in that scene at all.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: School spirit is definitely not lacking, there are various events and hype around our team and games!

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I'm not into the whole sorority thing, so I don't have anything to say.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had a good experience so far, people are very helpful, and I haven't felt out of place at all, however the drive into the city makes it difficult sometimes and takes up a lot of my time and money. Other than that I have had a great experience.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: During the summer it is sunny and warm and somewhat humid. However during the school year, all through the winter months we have mainly dreary rain all day long, the sky is dark, and it definitely affects my mood.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: There are a ton of places to eat, from McDonalds or Starbucks, to Chipotle, Pizza, and some nicer places as well. Many options to choose from!

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are all very diverse and have a variety of interests, dress, looks, etc.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: I love how many parks and green space is on campus and nearby. It's nice to know that even in the middle of the city you have somewhere more relaxing and scenic to hangout.
