3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't really explored the options to get off campus housing, but I would have to say that Portland State University offers a great and wide selection of off-campus housing options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options to choose from, but it is so expensive! I wish we had more student discounts and more cheaper options to find food instead of relying on McDonalds or Joe's Burgers.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I would have to say that there is some occasions in which there was some underage drinking going on in the dorms, but I am very pleased by how the school administration is with hearing the students voices and listening to their demands whenever they are protests.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I would have to say that one should get up early and save up some time to apply for scholarships since then time runs out and you will be left looking for other means for financial aid. The financial aid office was able to give me options and now I know what to do in-case I need some help with my money for school.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best parties are usually the ones that are going on in the city as well there are plenty of parties that are held by the University however, one has to be 21 and older to enter so it is a little hard for those that are underage to have a night life per se.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I would have to say that I have gotten sick a couple of times because of the food that I have eaten at Victor's since sometimes their meat (especially their chicken) can be under-cooked. There are very any thing that is appetizing for me so I stick to mostly getting pizza or hamburgers. Smith is alright, but it gets tiring after a while. I would want more Chinese food options since it is one of my favorite things to eat.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is nice living on campus since the buildings are close to classes and there is plenty to do within the dorm communities, but the problem is that I have been set up with two bad room-mates and solving the issue with them is very difficult as there so many hoops that one has to go through. As well, the options to house pets are very limited which makes me sad. I like their meal plans as it suits my living needs. The housing process is easy although I wish they could give us more space to be creative within the dorm.

Scholarships: find someone and stick with them. easier for them to double back on your account. always better to know someone in the dept's you'll do the most business in....

College Junior

Party Scene: i don't party on campus

3 College Junior

Campus Food: if it wasn't for the food carts and some of the places downtown i like to eat, I wouldn't consider eating around campus at all. i usually bring my food to save money.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've been in many buildings on campus where my fellow students live. From my frequent visits, I enjoyed the building(s) experience.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: House parties are the best and they provide a pleasant atmosphere for groups of people to mingle and get to know people from all sorts of backgrounds. this kind of exposure in a setting other than the classroom adds a different perspective to the college experience.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The location of the campus makes it a prime spot for food carts so their is always a variety of food carts to choose from. The dining hall is very clean and easy to navigate.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice to live on campus, but the management of the campus housing is pretty lacking. The dorms are small and a little cramped, but are close by to the classes. The surrounding community is very pleasant and diverse. The pricing of housing is increasing and the process to get housing is very tiresome.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some of the apartments are either not affordable by college students or are completely dumpy. All of the nice ones that are also reasonably priced are too far away.

Off-Campus Dining: I love the food here, I just wish I had the money to try more of it.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I don't have any complaints.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not get as much as I should've qualified for, and it was quite the hassle to receive it. I felt like the communications were convoluted.
