2 College Freshman

Athletics: Most of the students don't care about varsity sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The business program at Portland State is fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never hear about assaults going on, which is good

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There's a wide variety of courses to take.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Teachers and advisors tell kids about jobs around.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The fire alarms are ridiculous.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not big but I haven't heard bad things.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports scene isn't huge but our team is good.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the progressiveness of my school.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is armed with guns, which makes me (as a minority) feel very unsafe. I don't see a lot of crime on campus personally, but it makes me sick to my stomach to see a gun on the hip of a man, especially if that man has institutional power over me.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great, as have the classes! However, many of the professors seem to lack sensitivity training, and University Studies are absolutely useless to the students (nothing but a cash cow for the college).

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In today's economy, it's hard to get a job no matter where one went to college.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I haven't attended any sporting events but I enjoy working out in the gym! It's clean, spacious, and there is a large variety of equipment.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love my classes and teachers, worried about debt.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As a working parent, I have a limited schedule. However, I find that I can typically find a class to fit my lifestyle. Class sizes range from just 10 students to 300, with a variety of teaching styles employed.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I always receive an email alerting me to an attack or emergency situation on campus, whether I am there or not.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus, but have some friends who have and they seem to like it.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I actually like that we don't have any Greek life on campus, hence the review.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Applying was extremely easy. My only complaint was that I was automatically enrolled in a course to teach me how to be an effective college student, as I had been out of high school for a few years already. I did not appreciate my money being spent for me in that way.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Personally, I have never been to a game at PSU. Sports are not a largely emphasized aspect of student life there.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There's not a huge presence of greek life, there's a few houses here on campus

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football made it to the playoffs but other than that no one really pays attention to sports here. I wish attending games or tailgating was more of a thing here but also I like that the school culture is not dominated by sports.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: It's extremely easy to get drugs at the campus because it is within the city. This means a lot of non-students can come and sell. Not only that, older students buy underage students substances like alcohol and marijuana.
