4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My personal high school experience was a good as I could have made it with the teachers I respected to prepare me for college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors at the university hold their students to a very high standard from my experience. One of the major adjustments that I found between high school and college was not the work load has increased, but the quality of work that I turned in and submitted had to be much higher in order to get the better grades. However, at UP, there are three religion classes that are required for graduation. I am not Catholic, and going through these classes I thought was hard to follow not knowing the background of the religion very well, which I think the curriculum could do a better job at, seeing how every student has to go through these classes. The religion classes also were a lot of reading that would have been more applicable to a course that is a 200 level class, not necessarily at 100 level religion class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not done any jobs or internships in relation to the University of Portland, but the students that I do know that work on campus for the school or have internships through the school have greatly enjoyed it. In the business school, which I am enrolled in, the alumni network had many opportunities throughout the year that students could come and listen to, which I thought was extremely beneficial and something that I had not experienced before.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public Safety does a great job of making sure they patrol the campus very frequently and there are different modes of reaching public safety to ensure a secure campus. At the beginning of the school year, all freshman are introduced to the green dot program, which focuses on spreading safety and community throughout the campus, and this program was very frequently used and reminded of through signs and different programs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Last year I lived in Fields Hall, currently the newest dorm hall on campus. I greatly enjoyed the cleanliness and quality of the building, but I do know that some of the other hall dorms were not as neat or clean. The housing process was a little difficult for the following year however. The school usually does a pretty good job of getting out the deadlines that are necessary for students via student email, but when it came to the housing process, the deadline was announced rather late. This made it almost impossible for freshmen to realize that they needed to look for houses very early if they wanted to secure housing off campus. It is required that students know what they are doing for housing for the following year, and because of this, many students end up living on campus again their sophomore year(and therefore paying more money to the university).

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a new athletic facility for students that are not athletes, and the availability of different fitness is classes is very diversified and many students take advantage of the new facility. I used it almost everyday, and the hours are really accomadating to those who have early or late classes. Team performances are relatively average, and the most popular sport that is attended is the soccer games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the school, much greater than I thought I would. Our school is unique because the school is much smaller than a state school, therefore the classes are much smaller. Because of this, and because we are on a semester rather than quarter system, it is very easy to develop personal relations with the professors. This makes it easier to communicate with the teachers, as well as be held accountable in and out of class. For this reason, I would choose the school over again.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Parties are only known if you know the people who are throwing it. Usually need to bring your own drinks.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Just good ol house parties that usually happen here.

3 College Senior

Academics: Sciences, nursing, engineering, and business are the biggest, then education.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Not that much diversity on campus but school is always trying to improve on this subject.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Public Safety and UP staff is always on the look out for drugs, so be careful for watchful eyes.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Basically all the parties are shut down by P-safe then you end up roaming the streets of north Portland in the rain drunk. End up eating a quesadilla and chicken strips bc of the depressingly awful nightlife. This happens every weekend...No one goes to bars/clubs.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are bad. You get drunk and are just roaming campus/north Portland drunk. The parties there are people act snobby and judgmental. Not welcoming to freshmen at all. Basically a high school social scene.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty diverse because it's in Portland

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No pressure to drink since parties suck you aren't really missing out

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm trying to get into med school, we'll see

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Shipstad. Supposedly best community... Laundry was a pain and never got your clothes clean. Rooms were cramped and gross. Nothing special

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: No tailgates. No football. All they have is soccer in an okay stadium.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I want to transfer. Community is pretty superficial. Reminds me of the worst aspects of high school... Academics are alright nothing to get excited about.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had a hard time adjusting but looking forward towards future.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There a some programs that assist with all of this

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A bit expensive and also not that much space, but it gets the job done

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The games are fun but we aren't particularly that good in most sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a bit small and also I had a little bit of a rough adjustment in my first year but I'm looking forward to the next!
