4 College Junior

Campus Housing: the campus housing facilities are great. it all depends in where you going to stay. they have from the cheapest and small to the big and expensive. But they are all good and clean. I like it a lot because you are in downtown and the nightlife is great. You have a lot restaurants, concerts to go and much more. And they have a good community amongst the students housing residents.

Athletics: I attend to Portland State university in Oregon and the athletics department is really good. The re model the rec center with new courts, gym, swimming pools, rock climbing etc. I'm in the tennis club, ping pong club and badminton club. And I like all the facilities that the schools provides.

4 College Junior

Academics: With over 220 majors you have plenty of classes to choose from. You also have University Studies if your not an honor student with these studies you can choose what cluster you want to take. You get to choose something that you are interested in. The professors are awesome, very helpful, some have great office hours so you can get a hold of them.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Living in Downtown Portland is the best because you can do many things in one day. You have plenty of things to do you will never have nothing to do. This town is all about getting out and exploring the city but also mother nature. You can go to the mountains, or the beach which are both about an hour away. The nightlife is great many different places to hangout in.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Well it is Downtown Portland you have many options and many different cost. You can go late at night and you will find something to eat. This is the beauty of living in a big city.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I have never attended a game at Portland State so I don't really know what it is like at the games. I do know some of the players because they live in my dorm but that is about it.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Every student is different here at Portland State. Many different people from many different backgrounds. You are bound to find someone who has similar interest or hobbies as you do. The social life is pretty chill not very many parties. It is easy to meet new people with a campus this big but in such a small space. Plus Portland is an awesome place you can do so much in such a big city.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a good variety of off-campus dining so that students will explore options on what is interesting to them. The cost and convenience is okay as it's quite manageable and reasonable. But I don't think I've seen any student discounts so far, and I'm not fully sure what would be the best places to visit.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere of Portland is quite interesting as there are different things going on in Pioneer Square as they hold a lot of events that attracts people, an example in this case is the tree lighting ceremony. Safety in Portland is okay (from the places I've been to) as around Pioneer Square I have seen many officers patrolling the area and that adds to the safety.The local attitudes towards students is normal as everyone is treated equally.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: My specific program is the school of business. I do enjoy it as I am able to learn more about the business field and what things are necessary for jobs, etc. The workload is quite normal and the right amount for having classes two to three times a week, the curriculum is quite fair so that everyone has an equal chance. The facility is okay as there is adequate room for students to go to class, enough rooms for the study rooms/lounges as well are being able to meet the professors during office hours for help.
