Party Scene: Cmon it's Portland so it's overrun by old people and most bars close at like 7pm but still.. there's always something to do. PSU is right next to the nightlife scene, it's so easy to literally just walk to a club. The Escape (nearby all ages club) is there for younger students or students without fake IDs, and it's kinda fun. Transportation = your own feet or the streetcar to get there. There's concerts, bars, clubs, restaurants etc all in walking distance. Concerts especially are good for PSU students since they're so prevalent and close. Most students choose PSU for the location and Portland's music scene doesn't disappoint.

Party Scene: Dorm parties and kickbacks are easy to be found any day of the week on campus, especially Thurs-Sat. Anyone who says differently simply isn't looking for them because they're not exclusive. Frat parties at PSU are unusual because they are not held in frat houses, they are invite only, and guys and girls can equally get invited to them. To get to these, connections to the frats are needed. Sports teams throw legendary ragers among my circle of friends, I've never been to one but I've heard lots about them. If you have connections, there are plenty of house parties all over Portland, including some that occur right off of campus. Having off campus friends or friends that attend Reed can help you get in to these. The party scene at PSU isn't terrible however it is probably worse than most schools because of the lack of student housing around the campus. In my experience I party Thurs-Sat and never really have a dull weekend.

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.
