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.

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

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.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love the rec center. It's definitely a goal of mine to use it more this upcoming school year.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Portland State. I feel like it's been a great pick for me because I've had great experiences with classmates and professors. I'm not living on campus, so I haven't had the full college experience, but it's been great either way. I love it!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: A pretty diverse school engaging a lot of social, environmental, and worldly views.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had been attending Liberty High School for 2 years now and in general terms, it wasn't how I expected it would be. I had trouble fitting in, or in other words, adjust, socially speaking, with the crowd. It wasn't unlike my other school that I had been previously attended while I was in San Diego, and fit in with a wide array of people. But on the other hand, I did manage to make a handful of great friends that I am proud to still have and teachers that I can still connect to this day and rely on them for support, they had been like a family to me and that matters a lot. In this environment to which we get use to, I believe that so much support, whether it's from your parents, peers or teachers in the community, it's their commitment and courtesy of making a sacrifice for you to reach your goal. That is what matters. In another aspect, I do believe what make my school unique is how impressive the sports and the staff are, and the fact how many students reach out into joining sports and finding something that can show or find their inner identity, or be something that they can do whether it's for a college scholarship or simply doing for fun. For me, personally, I did manage to did 2 sports while at Liberty, track and tennis from my Junior and Senior year, respectively. This is one aspect that I know for certain that makes my school unique.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have learned a lot in the courses I have taken this year, particularly my mechanical engineering class. Class sizes are small and allow good relationships with the professors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's a wide range of excellent and well-known employers that recruit students on campus, especially for engineering degrees.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety and security is very good; however, since PSU is in the middle of downtown Portland, several homeless people tend to wander around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus Housing is expensive but it's spacious and the kitchen and bathroom in each room are very convenient. Move-in day for the dorms is very hectic, however moving out was much easier.

Greek Life: Greek life at Portland State is very small. For women, there is only one sorority and they are nearly unheard of and don't have a house. Only one fraternity is popular and well-known at Portland State.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at Portland State aren't as popular as other colleges; however, I enjoy attending sporting events and participating in intramurals.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Diversity at my school is what makes it so unique and allows me to gain a new, different experience than other schools.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I chose my school for its location and price in tuition, since I'm an in state student. It's pretty diverse, and the class sizes aren't huge. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the fact that it's downtown, so parking is a nightmare and super expensive. That's the only reason I wouldn't choose this school in the future.
