While the different departments seem well very equipped, the buildings themselves are badly in need of upgrading. There is one beautiful new building on campus, but unless you are in the Drawing/Painting/Photography department you won't get to benefit from it.
I also am not sure how you would ever get around campus on crutches or in a wheelchair, as there are steep gravel paths between buildings. I wish it was more accessible.
The programs are great though, and though course offerings are somewhat limited, there are enough interesting classes that I want to take! The academic advisors are the department heads, which I think is great. The department head for my concentration knows me, my schedule, and if it is going to be a reasonable workload when we look at choosing classes for next term. There is a lot of one-on-one attention and small class sizes, For hands-on work this is the way it absolutely should be!
It's a small school with a heart of gold, as they say.

Directly across from campus are two off-campus apartment complexes. I personally haven't lived in either, but I've heard a couple students who have say that the rent is more expensive than what they think it should be, given that they are students who live less than 1 block from campus, and the apartment complexes advertise their housing especially towards us. In downtown and on the East Side of Portland, housing is pretty easy to find - it can just get pricey in certain neighborhoods. Commuting from the East Side (or from anywhere in Portland) isn't a problem since our public transportation system here, Tri-Met, is so fabulous and offers several modes of transportation and locations.

A few students partake in smoking weed. The worst problem is cigarette smoking...worst drug ever!
