3 College Freshman

Academics: The general ed (FRINQ) is the stupidest thing ever.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There is a lot to choose from but I wish they had a nursing program. The professors I've had so far have been good to me. They are very lenient but not too much to where you can get away with everything. The workload just depends on the class and the amount of credits you are taking. Overall, I think this school will get you far. It challenges you the way it should.

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.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The school really cares about your success at Portland State. The school offers and does a good job of putting out resources for students to get homework help, office hours, and offer a variety of quiet places where students can study.
