What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love PSU for a number of reasons: the location is perfect, the professors are helpful and kind, and the student body is full of people from all walks of life. However, I have had many issues since starting school last year, whether that's trying to get the financial aid department to help me or simply getting a hold of housing. Overall, great atmosphere but don't expect anyone to help you out unless you blatantly beg for it.

The education I got was great, but it feels like students can fall through the cracks with the administration. Despite going to see a counselor every term to make sure I was on track to graduate on time I ended up needing to take an extra year of classes because of a mistake they made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is a very diverse school. It's in the middle of downtown Portland so there are a lot of extra activities you can do when you get over worked. The teachers are great and want to help you learn. Honestly, you just get what you put into it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved Portland State while I attended. The class sizes were large enough to have plenty of opinions during discussions, but small enough that you could remember most of your classmates' names. PSU is in the middle of downtown Portland and you can walk to all of your classes. My courses were my favorite part as a student and the food pantry always got me through the weekends. Only issue I find in this school is parking and transportation.

I am very excited to attend PSU in the fall. I can only imagine having a great experience based off what I've heard. I will be anxious to study in the Honors College and live along fellow classmates. I'm also ready to make use of the awesome Student Rec Center!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is widely diverse demographically as well as welcoming and accommodating to all backgrounds. Though you won't get your stereotypical college experience (i.e. parties, sports, greek life) the location in downtown Portland is unbeatable. The campus is simple and beautiful and on campus housing is clean and safe, but a little strict. Academics are great and staff are friendly, available, and helpful. It is definitely worth a visit or tour!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is a bunch of outlets with few signs and directions so a map is handy. The housing is fantastic for the space to chat, watch television and read is nice with the old and modern buildings. The only complaint is the bathrooms and closet space. In the buildings with classes, there are a lot of stairs and few drinking fountains so bring extra bottles and small backpacks. I don't much about the curriculum but the class size is suitable for the amount of students each day. Some things like trying to find the dentist, chiropractor, main events, financial aid and what each building specializes in needs improvement because most information is online and not word of mouth. Food is found in various places like for financial aid and Ondine and food carts so no reserve there. Mopeds, exercise apparel and one building contains the entire gym of the university and it is awesome. Don't overlook knowing that admittance is sequential and you need to be prepared from the beginning to enroll. Don't delay on financial aid and payment. For folks, living in another town, get some transportation if you have to work. There are opportunities on and off campus for employment so meet with an advisor on the best path. Don't overlook fun activities and clubs for it will take stress away. With studying, these classes will be harder than classes at a junior college so make a routine you are comfortable with and review several times before a test. Make use of the technology because there are several apps for class schedules, study time and event calendars. It was a brief visit but I shall enjoy PSU when I can, for if it changes me, I will grow too as I am challenged to give out my best and I will not fail.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University's urban yet welcoming atmosphere allows students to encounter other cultures and beliefs as well as explaining their own. World views are challenged and tested in the classrooms and outside them. It can have a charged or relaxed atmosphere and best of all, most people will be kind and understanding. Portland has its very own culture that students can enjoy including food, drink, the arts and sciences and everything in between.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy being a PSU student. It is affordable, the people are friendly, and there is always a way to get involved and make new friends! The openness of the campus is nice because you get to enjoy oregon during the spring, summer, and fall while still being safe on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University is in the center of downtown Portland. If you like traveling and learning new languages and cultures then Portland State University is the best place for you. In addition to the variety activities that help students involve more in the college life.
