What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is alright Despite not yet attending it, I have visited it many time. There is a bowling area within the school, and as it’s located in the downtown area of Portland, there is many food cart. I experience PSU through the weekly volunteer for it’s food pantry. I think it’s an alright place for me to attend in the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State is the only college I would ever want to call home. In the middle of it all, right down-town, PSU offers all the facilities you could dream of, an incredible staff (professors, student teachers, counselors, and Residential Assistants), gorgeous housing -usually with private baths and sometimes kitchens- with an incredible roommate matching process (though a bit costly, as it it downtown Portland; but it couldn't be more convenient), and a politically & positively charged atmosphere amongst peers. If you are looking for a place to experience life, love, expression, culture, and friendship in the fullest, Portland State University is one of the best options you have. Hope to see you there!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is a great school and I love it!! I enjoy being on campus. I stay late at the campus because I go to the library to do my work and I feel very safe on campus. I like the class sizes and also the professors. They are nice and they try to stay available for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school overall, but could improve in more than one of ways. I don’t hate it, and I love the fact that it has a city type feel to it. I have only gone there for one trimester, but already I feel like I fit in quite well and feel safe most of the time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Good but not the best. No school spirit, just classes and your own separate friends. The classes are different in size from small classes to big classes like biology lectures. Small classes are like english classes, especially the honors college. Overall good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a pretty amazing place to learn, although some of the buildings/facilities should get a makeover. Some places are a bit old and worn out. So far, my teachers have all been amazing. They were all very caring, and made me feel welcome at the school. There are many places to eat around the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is pretty good so far can't complain. The food that is provided to the students is honestly not the best but there are a handful of places to eat around here. The education is great her and there are so many. The other students here are very nice, only because everyone want to make friends to one another, so if your looking for friends here its really easy. And they set up a lot of great activities so you can have something to do or plan ahead.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about Portland State University is the city itself. Portland is a well planned and beautiful place to be. everything a college student would need is within walking distance. PSU is in the conference Big Sky, which isn't the most popular and most active but our athletics are still amazing and we are only just improving each year. PSU is just the right size, you can almost always get to any of your classes within 5-7 minutes from where you are standing. PSU is a sustainability school, so the school is super active in recycling and being environmental. I spend most of my time in the dorms with friends or at Victor's dining hall when I'm on campus. When I tell people I attend Portland State University, they respond with a "Really, that's awesome, how big is your school?" Portland State University is the biggest university in Oregon. Most students complaints is the food at the dining hall because the choices hardly ever change.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

PSU is a great low cost school both for in state and out of state residents. The city of Portland gives students an alternative feel for city life that also coexists inside of the beautiful greenery of Oregon. There's more freedom to explore outside of the University and explore what it means to connect with the people you meet and the land you live in. That's what I love about PSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is a progressive liberal arts school that I love attending. My classes are close to my apartment which is very important to me. My housing is affordable and I love my roommates. The only thing I would change about PSU is the lack of campus security. We have Portland Police patrolling our campus but we need more full-time security personnel.
