4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are guards and alert podiums all over the place on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center can help you immeasurably, use them.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It doesn't really play a big roll at this school.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It seems to be a big thing for those who are interested in it, but it's not rubbed in the faces of those who are not.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved going to school here. the classes have taught me a lot but more than that, the benefits they supply helps immensely. There is a gym you are automatically able to use. There is a nice sized food court. The staff is all helpful and knowledgeable. It's in a great location. Last but not least, the school insurance is amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class size for most courses was excellent. Only complaint was lecture classes with 300+ people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As long as you're a STEM major, you will be fine. Several of the social sciences have programs that are too easy that don't challenge students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: PSU is a commuter school in the heart of downtown Portland. It does not encourage the student culture that breeds rape/violence like most campuses, but there is still the danger of living in Portland. As long as it's daylight, I feel pretty safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Portland is very expensive, which is reflected in University Housing rates.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not a priority for PSU and I don't have a personal interest, so I'm not really sure how it affects our campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The student body does not pay much attention to athletics, but the athletes don't seem to have any complaints (they're still playing). It's the best of both worlds.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the campus location and have had nothing to complain about class-wise, outside of the University studies program.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of many crimes on campus. The campus security are readily available and they have little stations around campus where if you press a button someone from campus security will come to escort you to where you are going. The one thing is that campus officers do carry guns, which is completely unnecessary.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not interested in joining the Greek life so I don't know a lot about it, generally, the frat boys are kind of obnoxious and the sorority girls do a lot of bake sales and stuff on campus. There aren't houses for the greek life where they live, so even if you do join you will still live in the dorms or off campus like the rest of the students.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: No major concerns at this time.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: So far no major issues have arouse. My experience so far has been fair.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: No major complaints outside of security possibly having firearms in which is not good for anyone.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Again not an area I care for or relevant to my daily living.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I don't really care or pay attention to the sports aspects of the school.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Not great but sufficient at this time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like I said, I didn't live on campus in the dorms and I worked full time, so my college experience was wasn't as complete as it could have been. But from what I was able to be part of was, I loved every moment of it, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love what I have studied so far and am eager to take more career focused and major focused classes. They don't offer speech and hearing sciences for undergrads, so because of that, I might have to transfer schools at one point, which makes me super sad. I have to get a year in of speech and hearing sciences, since I want to become a speech pathologist.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, the only time were I feel a little scared is when I walk across campus from the library to University Pointe when it gets dark and there's not a lot of people on campus. It's a general feeling, since I am female, nothing specifically caused by being on campus. They do have the option to be escorted, which I just love and if I ever do feel like I'm in the position where I do need an escort, to access one is super easy, something I love about PSU.

Campus Housing: I lived for a little bit in apartments on campus, University Pointe. I hated my roommates, but the aside from them, living there was okay. I liked that it was on campus and that they had a kitchen where I could cook my own food. I would have stayed there if they would have paired me with other PSU students, not beauty school girls.
