What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not your typical college. A very independent approach to university. I personally like that, but others may not. The university lacks the feel of most state colleges such as UO and OSU who thrive off of sports and college towns. PSU is incorporated into Portland providing for new experiences, if taken.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State is very innovative and constantly creating new ways to be more eco-friendly. It is different than other schools, because it's in a big city and most students commute to school. Teachers have students best interest in mind, and are willing to help students succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State is a great school for someone who likes the outdoors. Its location in downtown Portland offers you a variety of different activities to do such as trying new foods from different cultures at the food carts, to enjoying the scenery at the Portland Waterfront. The student body is diverse and ranges from young 17 year olds who just graduated, to parents returning for another degree. Overall the campus is a great place to be because everyone is friendly, caring, and constantly striving to better each other!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great commuter school, aka professors know you have lives outside of the class and don't treat you as children. With an exception in some of my lower classes, people generally take their education in a good and serious note here. And my professors have been for the most part willing and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Location is perhaps the key point of success of Portland State University as a school. It's located in a great urban environment in downtown, heart of Portland, Oregon. It is close to almost near everything making it accessible for students to connect to the community and future employers. Great school with many opportunities for employment!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I like the fact that tuition isn't as high like other Oregon colleges and is one of the reasons why I chose Portland State University. I also love the fact that it has a community of colored people and everyone's culture is appreciated. There is support for those races that are often underrepresented on colleges.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland State University provides non stop for their students. They are always seeking new ways to improve education and career possibilities. They have given intern opportunities for those that come from adversity. They put the bar high, but help their students reach it. The staff will help outside of class with resumes, personal goals, assignments etc. Their mission is to provide education to those that would not otherwise have the opportunities. From single working parents to troubled youth, they provide opportunities for everyone to succeed. This provide for better lives for those they serve. They have extra programs, health services, and recreation centers for all students to use. They are all about success of the students. I have recommended this school to many friends because they are a leader in academic excellence.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! But it is a little pricey. Financial aid services are literally no help and are mean. Housing is extremely expensive, but everything else is really nice here. I have found a great home here. Sports are good, classes are good, and everyone here is really nice and open minded.

Best of both worlds- experience a vibrant, collaborative campus in exciting downtown Portland

PSU is a unique atmosphere for eager and inquisitive minds. The urban campus allows for many opportunities and resources to enrich your academic experience. Public transportation is easy and accessible. Museums, galleries, and concert halls are within walking distance. The locals' favorite food trucks and other delicious eat and drink options are plentiful. But, perhaps, the best part of the campus are the towering trees and green park blocks spread throughout and a breathtaking view of Mt. Hood in the distance. All of these factors only add to PSU's dynamic academic environment. PSU's location also enhances student engagement and community involvement. There are plenty of on and off-campus volunteer opportunities, student activity groups, recreational clubs, diversity awareness workshops and events, multi-cultural celebrations, social justice advocacies, etc. There is always something to do to challenge the brain, energize the body, and inspire the spirit. PSU is more than just a university, it's a place and space for both individual and group growth and success.
