College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus because its very expensive

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Very costly to dine off campus

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel that campus strictness is at an appropriate level, and I feel generally safe on campus.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party, but campus events are fun.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a wide variety of options on and around campus to choose from, not necessarily the healthiest options though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great for managing time. The commuting factor can take a lot of time from daily schedule that can be dedicated to completing work. The priority exchange is definitely a benefit.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing market is tight in portland. The school probably won't help you find anything off campus. look towards Craigslist for help in shared housing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Portland is big on health nuts. As such, we have a good selection of off campus healthy restaurants and food carts. Vegetarians, vegans, paleo, food allergies, gluten free... it's not perfect here but it's pretty good accommodation.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Portland police are nice if you don't upset them.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The psu scholarship application is in depth and has many scholarships! But make sure you get it in on time and do it all correctly, and proofread all essays. Give yourself enough time. Also fill out the osac.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't live or eat on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is in my city, near my family. I would ot go there if I had another choice. Too many hipsters.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I did not seek assistance from PSU for my off-campus housing.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Many options at downtown prices.

3 College Junior

Administration: I get along just fine in my social groups and have sensed support for new communities.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Just follow instructions. It is not difficult.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I do not party, but from what I hear, it is fun.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It is about average for any strip mall.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The rental market is very saturated right now, so it can be difficult to find an affordable place that is close to campus, especially in the downtown area.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Portland is a very foodie city and you can find almost anything you could ever want downtown

Recent Alumnus

Administration: I have not had any experiences involving this subject.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: If you're planning to take classes during summer term, you need to speak with the financial aid office. Last year, they billed me for my summer class and when I called, they said that all of my money had been dispersed during the regular school term.

Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: PSU is a commuter school, so most people, including myself, live off-campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: SMSU has okay prepared food, but they do not emphasize healthy options in the cafeteria [lots of pizza, bagels, etc]. You're better off going to the convenience store [in SMSU] and purchasing something from the Eatin' Alive or Snackrelidge brands. Cheapest food is the carts, but you have to be careful about what you eat. Salad rolls are the best cheap option, but have a ton of calories from the rice paper, rice noodles and peanut sauce.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.
