I have enjoyed all of my counseling classes at Multnomah University! I feel as if each one has pushed me to improve my knowledge and worldviews. However, Multnomah requires students to take four bible classes, I must be honest these classes are extremely difficult and time consuming! They are more rigorous then my counseling classes to say the least. I wish they would incorporate the bible classes into the counseling material. I would suggest for them to drop them or modify the workload. 540 per credit is no joke.

Most of the time everything goes well with the computers on campus. The only issues I have had is the internet has been shut off a few times (probably about two or three times a semester) during heavy assignment times. Most people have their own computers so computer labs are often open. There are computers in the dorms and in the library and near the cafeteria. Depending on your classes, sometimes you have to refill your printing money (they give you $10 each semester). I think they should add a little more on there at the start. You can also print directly from your personal computer to the lab printers (new this semester)!

Portland is an amazing city to go to college in! With plenty of things going on at all hours of the day, there is always something to do. As a college student, I am always searching for cheap or free entertainment and with cheap theaters, McMenamins, and street fairs, I stay busy without spending much money. There is something in Portland for everyone! Dancing, happy hours, breakfast, cultural fairs, art museums, concerts, and other city events.
