5 College Senior

Campus Quality: The campus is in downtown Portland and by the waterfront. It is a beautiful mixture of old and new buildings.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe during the day but at night it can be scary.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I'm in a relationship so I don't look.

3 College Senior

Transportation: It would be more convenience if there a direct train from the westside suburbs to campus.

5 College Junior

Transportation: Not a lot of traffic.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Love it.
It has lots of nature, great fresh air, nice people and great staff

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe and protected by the security around us.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can't say I know a whole lot about the greek scene.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I absolutely love my graduate program (marital, couple and family counseling) and I love most of my teachers! I like that the program is set up to make sure you're in the same class with the rest of your program and it's nice to have classes with the rest of the cohort.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are amazing and the curriculum is not tedious and it is all useful. No "busy work", and the assignments are practical and I feel like I'm learning what I need to learn for my future.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The word "hipster" comes to mind, but not everyone I have encountered has fit that description. For the most part, there's a lot of diversity and everyone is nice enough.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I haven't dined in the student dining halls but the surrounding restaurants are nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a surrounding city and the area is very nice and the commute isn't bad. However, if I was living in the same city as the school, it'd be really expensive which is why I don't do it. I wish there were more realistic and affordable options available close to campus, and/or I wish graduate student housing was available so I could be on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I can't say I've experienced much of these things yet but it seems like there's plenty to do.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There's a lot of diversity and it seems like there's a lot of academic clubs and social events always happening.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: I love Portland! So many restaurants and interesting things happening.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The permit costs are pretty reasonable for me. Ticketing and fines are problematic, which is why I bought the permit. Unless you live on campus, you need a vehicle. Availability and convenience of parking spaces vary on the day and time, but aren't horrible.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Cheap for in state. Close to home. What else can I say.

3 College Junior

Weather: Portland has a lot of rain. If you hate rain. You'll hate here. The summers are beautiful however.

3 College Junior

Parking: The costs are a tad expensive to encourage walking and public transit.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Portland food scene is amazing. Food carts with all types of fares. Quality restaurants. Vegan options. Paleo options. Any option and type of food you can think of can be had.
