What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Portland has an amazing Nursing program. The staff at this institution are truly on your side and care about your overall well-being, not only pertaining to academics. This university cares about each student inside and outside of the classroom. There are so many facilities that students have access to whenever they need help, no matter what the topic is. I definitely enjoy it here at UP.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most of the staff is amazing, and classes are engaging. The student body is lacking a bit of diversity and depth. Students first coming to UP often are a tad immature. I personally struggled with the engineering program not because of the difficulty, but because of the sheer work load and I often times did not think that it was worth it to put that much time into school.

It is an open, beautiful place for people that are looking for a well-rounded education. The students and the faculty give a sense of community and trust. It is in summary a great place to learn and grow in every aspect of our persona.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Portland is an amazing university, not only for the rigor of the academia and how involved the faculty is, but also the general care the entire campus has; students included. I feel like we are all one big family, everyone smiles at each other, goes to the soccer games to scream for the team and I have made some of my favorite memories there with our amazing campus events. I would never tell anyone University of Portland is a bad choice in college. The beauty of the campus and 10 minute commute to downtown Portland doesn't hurt either.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Portland. It's been a really great fit for me. The class sizes are small, my largest class is about 35 students, which is great to get involved in campus and to have teachers that are always wanting to help you succeed. Everyone on campus is extremely nice and friendly too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love University of Portland! It's a small school and there are pro's and con's to that. We have an AMAZING sense of community, I have no problems making new friends on campus. University of Portland has become my second home and I feel very happy here. I never feel any pressure to look nice for class, a lot of girls don't wear makeup and wear comfortable clothes ( of course there are also girls who put on makeup and dress nice but not enough for it to be an expectation for everyone to do the same). Trust me this is a good feeling to have when you're running to your 8am class late in your pj's. Also our campus is beautiful! Class sizes are great and students participate a lot. Also professors are always available if you need some extra help. We also have peer tutors/ academic help centers. A few con's is that there's not much around campus within walking distance. There's a lot of things within 3 miles of school (st. johns area) but if you're walking it's not that convenient. There is public transit but the buses run about every 20-30 minutes so it's not the most convenient either. Also the party scene is not that great. Student's host parties at their homes so they don't really wanna pay for damage done or get fined for having a raging party. But every weekend there are parties you just have to know/ask the right people to get specific addresses. Other than that I love my school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While at first it was hard to be away from home, University of Portland became my home away from home. I am in love with the small class sizes because the students really get to be personal with the professors. I am in love with the small knit community and the strong faith based environment. Overall, the University of Portland is an amazing establishment with so many different and great programs and opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school seems to be focused on money, and building new things, but are we making enough room for students? Nursing school is pretty intimidating. It's actually the scariest thing here. Every little thing and you're threatened to be kicked out of the school. However, my second major is psychology and that is BY FAR the absolute best major here. I have never had a bad psych professor, or a mean psychology professor. They're mind-blowingly good and amazing people.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for having great nursing, engineering, and business schools. This school is also known for being big on soccer, especially since there is no football team and the team is Division I even though the population of this school is around 4,000. This school is interesting because it is a Catholic, and sort of conservative school however it is on the outskirt of Portland, one of the most liberal cities anyone could find. This school is also known for being small and supportive. Teachers know your name, and recognize when students miss class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Enjoy the time you have with friends and family at home. Get ready for a different life, new friends, new classes, and a completely new environment. This school is not very diverse, so get ready to see a lot more caucasians than you are used to seeing. Do not be shy in making friends. Feel comfortable, the first friends you make may not be your best friends, but just keep talking to people and you can make some amazing friendships. Also, be adventurous. You do not have a car, so you have to make the most of campus. Climb some trees, even though you are not supposed to, go down to the river to relax, and say yes to every good opportunity. Keep an open mind, but be confident in yourself. However, at the same time, sometimes you just have to stick up for what you believe in, keeping an open mind does not mean letting others corrupt you. Do not look back on regrets, move forward, so many more opportunities will come, just be ready.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how hard it would be to transition to life in college. Everyone only mentions how fun and life-changing college is, however I never really realized until I got to school that I was leaving behind family, friends, and the comfort of home to come here. I am not trying to say that the transition to college life is miserable, I am just saying that the struggles of transitioning should not be ignored. It is often cloudy and rainy here in Portland, and that was hard to adjust to coming from Hawaii.
