4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Portland has a lot to offer, but the safety is lacking. Also the parking sucks. The worst. Lots to do tho as far as shopping, sports, parks, etc.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If the school up and disappeared, this town would be just as much fun to be in anyway. Tones of culture, nightlife, educational opportunities, friendly natives, social programs/volunteers, parks and outdoors... Some students have trouble getting to class because they are too busy!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It is an interesting city. people are all about being different and friendly. things are constantly happening, from naked bike rides, to parades, to shows and viewings. we have our problems like any city but i feel we make up for that b being a very friendly place and being our quirky-iest best. there is a mall in the city, several just outside the city, a par on every block almost, many water attractions, very pet friendly, very green and innovative. and sports are huge here. on game day down town is flooded with green clothed fans supporting their teams.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You can find better places away from the university, eveything dies after a while.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: east access to everything portland is a great city to live in
