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.

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.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: The student population is very diverse and generally accepting of one another. It is nice to experience so many other cultures and opinions all in one place and I feel it adds to the experience.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: I live over the bridge, so I have to drive in everyday, deal with all of the traffic, and pay a TON for parking. A parking pass doesn't seem to save you any money, in some cases costs more than paying for parking each day you have class, depending on how many days you are there. It is a high cost.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The School of Business Administration is great. They are very helpful with providing resources for jobs or internships, and I feel the program is well rounded. The facilities are decent, kinda old, but get the job done.

Academics: Many students are eager to form study groups and professors usually encourage it as well.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: I live over the bridge in Vancouver, and honestly don't really party or drink, so it would be hard for me to say.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: In general I feel safe, although being in the middle of a city always has it's own set of fears that can come with it, however there are always other students and professors around who are friendly and helpful if you ever need anything.

4 College Junior

Parking: Its a great place to ride a bike.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I've always been able to get what I need, but I really wish PSU didn't work through Higher One. They seem to be making a lot of money off of student loans and complicate the process if you try o have it put directly into your already existing account.

College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm old enough to dink, and I enjoy happy hours with my fellow students from time to time.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, but the city itself has a lot of great housing options and awesome neighborhoods.
