Academics: I personally feel its just ok.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can't say the school is a supportive school or really outreaches to its student body as much as it should. I also think that they are not as student orientated as they should be. This is a state funded school so maybe that has something to do with it but when you see where their operational money is being dumped into you really question if they have a students best interest in mind. Social justice and equitable wages are not happening among the lowest paid worker and the president.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I will say my prospects are because what I have done outside of school. I am only persuing my masters because I need that

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Due to location and education I think PSU does ok in this area.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I personally have not lived on campus but based on my colleagues that have I can say overall its average aside the cost which is poor.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I didnt realize we had it

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel like I have been going to school advising myself all the way through so I can't say it's been the best experience.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: PSU has more issues relating to how it operates in regards for the working student. Most of the student body is older and work full time which requires catering to this type of student. They gouge the student everywhere they can and do not operate as an academic institution but more as a business. Higher education should not be set up in this manner and as a school that prides itself on being a nonconformist institution its doing just that.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: You can often smell the drug use, but it is easy to stay away from if you do not want to partake.

3 College Student

Party Scene: There are bars in close proximity to the campus. If you do not want to party it is very easy to stay away from it.

Diversity: The campus is very diverse. It is a bit of a culture shock at first, but it allows a great deal of personal growth to be able to accept and understand other people.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: For a first year student, it is very easy to find a job that will work with your schedule.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: You really can't go wrong with on campus housing. Although it is a little spendy, it is still cheaper than paying $1000 plus utilities. At PSU the rent ranges from $445-900 and that includes water, cable, heat, and ease of access to the University.

4 College Student

Greek Life: The only sign of Greek life on campus is that they spray paint greek letters on the pavement. Very harmless and they usually only host public events during orientation/welcome week!

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Portland State is an amazing place to attend college. PSU has given me the ability to venture outside of my comfort zone while also having the support of my peers, advisors and instructors. Despite what some people might say, PSU does measures up and exceeds other public universities. PSU has a unique urban experience that adds to a students overall education and experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and safety are a huge concern on campus. The school talks to us regarding how to interrupt sexual assault and also what to do in other challenging circumstances

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Portland State University is a top notch school in a city environment. Do not expect any favors from anyone except your instructors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center at Portland State University is great for finding a job within Portland and also at the college itself

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing feels relaxed and absolutely approachable as a place to call home
