4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments in Portland are everywhere -- especially on Congress St, which is convenient. I live with friends of the family in the next town over, and they drop me off at school every morning.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of variety, good quality food and wonderful service at every place we've visited. Many of the restaurants have student discounts available that make it affordable to grab something to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid department is always helpful with answering questions and assisting in finding additional scholarships to apply for. The school doesn't have an excess amount of funds, so outside scholarships really help.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At first I was unsure about this school, but as I got through the admissions process and learned more, I realized this was the best school for me. Everyone is really helpful and will do their best to help you out if you reach out to them! Classes are fun, the teachers are great and I couldn't have gotten into a better school.

Athletics: The school doesn't offer any gym options and the sports clubs are very few. There's a gym nearby that offers a discount.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Being an international student, I needed quite the amount of scholarship to cover my educational expenses, and the process went smoothly and they were really considerate of my situation. If you need more money, ASK THEM. They'll understand and help you out to the best of their abilities!!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm a picky eater, so my experience with campus food hasn't been as great. Then again, it's a matter of taste.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the fact that you're allowed to live in an apartment-style residence hall in your first year of college. It's pretty cheap when compared to other universities. They're spacious and well-lit!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, all of the professors I've met are wonderful. I ask a lot of questions, and they are really helpful in answering them. The courses, although at first make me want to pull my hair out, are extremely helpful. The foundation courses force students to think in an entirely new way and I can see my own improvement from project to project. I recently went home and saw my art from senior year of high school that I was once so proud of, and wanted to shove it in the back of the closet. I never imagined I would come so far so fast.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and I've had people ask me how far the commute is. I laugh, because I'm closer than one of the dorms. The low cost places can be a little bit sketchy but in the long run, I've saved money from living off campus. The only con is not having a meal plan and that adding it gets a bit expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a decent number of options. As a vegetarian, in most towns I feel extremely limited. (Meat-eaters don't realize how much of it they're actually eating, apparently.) Here, there's at least one strictly vegetarian/vegan restaurant and a lot of places offer separate menus so that I don't have to weed through everything.

5 College Freshman

Administration: As somebody who's well behaved, I haven't even thought about the fact that these policies exist nor have I heard anyone say anything negative about the policies or enforcement.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I feel like everybody has issues with the FAFSA. There's just so much. Being a small school, I wonder if there could be some assistance offered. But then again, I wonder if anybody would take advantage of it . . .

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: We're all too busy for parties so people don't care that there are none.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: It is near impossible to get a straight answer and the different departments don't talk to each others.

Party Scene: There aren't a lot of places to go, but there are quite a few bars and some new clubs in the old port area.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The rooms are large and comfortable and you will never need to share a bathroom with more than three other people.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There quite a few options but the better ones are further away from the school.

Local Area: Its a big city with a small town feel.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many great options many of which are privately owned and decently priced. The best part is that it is really hard to pick a bad place.

1 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There are only two things to participate in: the running club and the indoor soccer club and neither of which are part of a league. There is also no student center or gym.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy it here. The classes are nice and small and your known by your name not a number. Your teachers will approach you if your falling behind to see what's up. Very caring and considering of your future. The social life could be a bit better, but in the end your not there to party 24/7. Very rigorous program, usually up well past 12 doing homework. Could use some more housing due to an increase in students, and defiantly needs a gym. Really wish the fashion and textiles major was more developed, and had more teachers. But granted it is a brand new major. Besides all the tiny cons its a great school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's no self entitled professors here and if there are I haven't met them. Very considerate and care about your success. Fashion and textiles major needs to develop more. A lot more. But its in the works.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The hours can be a little tough depending on your academic schedule, and as far as late nigh options there are none. The café closes at 7pm so your on your own from there. The food is okay, vegetarian options are abundant and very healthy. If you have an apartment there's really no reason to eat there, only for lunch since you usual have class.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's a running club but if your not into running there's nothing else as far as sports go. Really wish we had a gym at school. Granted we get discounts at YMCA, but you still have to pay monthly. A lot of other colleges have gyms for free, so it kind of stinks that we don't have one.
