4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of my classes are large, but everyone tries to get to know each other and help the class pass.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy it here - the people, the curriculum, the campus, everything.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have security that walks students to and from class and back to their dorms. Every now and then, we get an email about public safety. It is a big deal.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've been to almost all the housing buildings on campus and they are affordable and clean.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a big deal here, but there are sororities and fraternities. Everyone does their own thing.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We've recently gotten two former University of Oregon Duck footballs players join the PSU team. However, since the school isn't part of the "big leagues", football isn't that much of a big deal. But I suppose we are good.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is in the heart of Downtown Portland, and I experience new events each day. Everyone is unique and different.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not personally live on campus, but from those that I know that do, they love it. They love to be in the city and to be right in the middle of the action

4 College Junior

Athletics: The teams are very professional on and off of the field. You will see members of the team in classes and they are some of the most genuine people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is one of the most diverse places that I have ever been. I have learned so much about different cultures as well as involving myself with various people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel as though the more classes I take the more I fall in love with the concept of school and especially Portland State. I want to become a Nurse, so leaving PSU is gonna be tough. But I am excited for what the future holds.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally have never been apart of their internship or job prospects because PSU doesn't particularly have any connection in nursing.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always see campus security around making sure no theft or harm comes upon the student community. Although it is tough to stop every little thing, we have had no fuss over the subject of sexual assault. There were multiple incidents in which the cars in the parking garages were getting broken into, but then the campus security cranked up their rounds and it wasn't a problem any longer.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pretty old buildings with expensive room & board to go along with it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics teams are not very good. The fan support is generally moderate. Athletics aren't a big part of PSU.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a diverse environment at Portland State University in which not many people interact with each other because everyone is at different phases in their learning process. The range of age within a class I've seen has been 18 and up to an old couple that were in their 70s. Although there are plenty of young students at PSU, in regular general education classes for pre-requisites are completely diverse. I am a fan of how one-track and independent PSU is as a school altogether.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: heath and safety on campus are issues that need to be further addressed

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: there is only one good dorm and it is not affordable for the average student. the other dorms are run down, out of date and MOLDY.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics arent huge at my school being that i go to a mostly commuter school. They arent anything to complain about, though. theyre actually pretty enjoyable!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school so far. The only thing I will say is that I do wish that the university and the professors themselves wold put just a LITTLE more effort into helping the studnts be successful!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sometimes is hard to understand what the professors are trying to say. However, they are nice and friendly.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's hard to get a job on campus because it's really compitive with peers.
