My school is in the heart of Downtown Portland, and I experience new events each day. Everyone is unique and different.

This school is one of the most diverse places that I have ever been. I have learned so much about different cultures as well as involving myself with various people.

It's a diverse environment at Portland State University in which not many people interact with each other because everyone is at different phases in their learning process. The range of age within a class I've seen has been 18 and up to an old couple that were in their 70s. Although there are plenty of young students at PSU, in regular general education classes for pre-requisites are completely diverse. I am a fan of how one-track and independent PSU is as a school altogether.
