4 College Senior

Academics: I enjoy the mentality that Portland State campus offers. It is a wonderful place to gain an education. From the instructors to the student body, and the services; this place is great.

4 College Senior

Academics: Studying to become an environmental scientist is humbling at best. It puts the scope and scale of the world and beyond into focus and will no doubt be the most sought after expertise in the coming years. Learning the material in one of the most environmentally friendly places in the United States shows in the curriculum and the earnest nature of the instructors. It makes you want to become an environmental scientist, even if you didn't want to before. The material is difficult, but rewarding and necessary.

2 College Senior

Academics: It's a monopoly of "education" which serves only to employ sub-rate professors and has no intention of actually offering an education of any kind. Prerequisite courses and administrative garbage prevent actual attainment. Offensive professors degrade students at every opportunity.

3 College Senior

Academics: most of the information is totally unneeded for the specific field, and most of the classes are not even related to the major.

3 College Junior

Academics: Science facilities are old but they make due, workload is expected amount
