Guys & Girls:
The students at Multnomah are great people. Everyone majors in Bible/Theology, so we are all coming to the school with similar interests. It's easy to make friends, and it isn't joked about as Multnomah Bridal College for no reason. Honestly, to keep up with two majors or a few minors, as many students at MU do, you have to be a pretty hard working individual, but you can always find time to run down to the artisan coffee shop for a latte or the local park to do some studying. Most of the students are typical Portland style dressers, if you don't know what I mean, watch Portlandia.

Portland is an amazing city to go to college in! With plenty of things going on at all hours of the day, there is always something to do. As a college student, I am always searching for cheap or free entertainment and with cheap theaters, McMenamins, and street fairs, I stay busy without spending much money. There is something in Portland for everyone! Dancing, happy hours, breakfast, cultural fairs, art museums, concerts, and other city events.

Mulntomah Athletics has a lot of fan support. I am not in the Athletics program, but I know they all really enjoy each other and Multnomah students love our school!

Even for those who don't play, sports are fun at MU! The school is very supportive of all our teams and encourages the players to do their best and uphold high standards.

You get all types at Multnomah, and it makes for a great environment. There is so pressure to find a date, but it seems to be easy for those who want to. My favorite part is the low key atmosphere that allows lots of guys and girls to just be friends in a meaningful way.

On campus people are creative in the fun and community activities we choose. Its always safe and never leaves you feeling gross in the morning. The frequented places don't ever grow old.

Having a car to get where you need to go helps tremendously especially with Portland traffic and the location of our school. Living on a street that has a lot of suspicious activity does not help for young women or any person to be able to go somewhere by themselves. If a person does not have a means of transportation, then taking the bus or max transit is the next option. Again, however, going by oneself is difficult. The reason why this grade is somewhat high, however, is because there are many available stores and locations near the school. The freeway is super closeby. Having a car gets rid of all the worries that come with the suspicious activity on the streets and would help any student.

The Ups and Downs of the Dorms at Multnomah
While many students prefer to have a room to themselves or move off campus as soon as possible, there are still positives to living on campus at our school. I like many do look forward to being on my own and living as my own person, since there are still policies that are a must when you live on campus; the dorms are well furnished and the living rooms are spacious. The laundry is easily accessible; the kitchen could use a few improvements, but there is a community fridge that is helpful. I grade this aspect in the B range because of the strictness of the dorm life, in that you must be 21 to not live there unless you live with family. Otherwise, this area would receive a higher score.

While there are a few sports offered and lots of students will participate, the finances do not allow for many other organized teams to be formed. There is boys basketball, girls volleyball, and recently a soccer team formed through the Montavilla Community has decided to play together, but not through the school. Other than that, students come up with their own sports from spikeball, frizbee, and running.

Our on-campus housing and alcohol policies are strictly enforced. You must be 21 to live off-campus or in the apartments, and there are hardly any exceptions made even if you are in your third year of school. This policy is difficult for myself as well as others who are ready to move out and start life on our own. The consequences for drinking are also strictly enforced. That one is pretty understandable, though, in my opinion.

The places around campus are abundant, varied, and excellent. They are all quick and easily accessible.

The cafeteria has continual serve all day long so you can eat whenever you are hungry and the cafeteria staff is awesome. They are always friendly and willing to take suggestions and listen to student opinions. The food is pretty good, but a little repetitive. Everyone has to purchase the same meal plan, which is unfortunate if you are not on campus all of the time because of work or do not eat very much. There is a campus coffee shop, which you have flex credit for every semester as a part of the meal plan, which is really nice.

There is occasional difficulty in finding a parking spot when there are a lot of classes, but even the farthest parking spots still are not more than a few minutes walk from classes. Parking on the street is also available, which can make it difficult to drive down those streets as space is tight. Otherwise, parking is well enforced and permits are easy to get. Freshmen and seniors have the same access to parking.

Health & Safety:
The nurse is really nice, but she usually refers us to Urgent Care. Security is good but because we are on 82nd street in Portland we have some weird people come on campus and try to get in the dorms, walk around, hang out around the parking lots. Most times if not always security is notified and take action.

Everyone is wonderful! Though we all have different personalities and groups, we all have the same love for Jesus.

It's pretty good if you live on campus but off campus you usually are going to park on the street if you arrive after 8am.

The process of getting into my Biblical Theology/Youth Ministry majors was relatively easy. I didn't have to do a special application process when applying to the school. Once I was there, I just started enrolling in the classes that were required for me to graduate both majors. The only challenging part of the process was the required essay.

Multnomah University has just finished building brand new apartments for upperclassmen to live off campus which consist of 2-3 bedrooms in each apartment. Also they have a section on the East side of campus devoted to married couples in which one or both spouse(s) attend the school. Both of which can be added to the student's tuition cost rather than a monthly payment that would happen anywhere else in the city.

There's essentially only two dinning halls at Multnomah University and they are Roger's Cafe and the cafeteria. Overall the food served is about an average quality, however, there is not a whole lot of variety among the food served on a daily basis.

The drug scene at Multnomah University is not really big to my knowledge. However, I have heard of encounters in the past in which students would head off campus in which they'd partake in drinking and smoking. I believe drinking is more the preferred drug that goes on between the students of Multnomah University.

The weather in Portland is pretty miserable during the majority of the school year. It is overcast and rainy for most of the school months with the exception of the first month of the fall semester and the last month of spring semester. When the sun does shine through it is usually cold and windy.
College Junior 2013-01-03T23:13:18Z
We only have two sports teams at our school. Those are woman's volleyball and men's basketball. The fan support isn't very big at any sporting events.
College Junior 2013-01-03T23:11:00Z
I haven't had much luck with finding financial aid from the school. I have received financial aid based on my grades, but other than that I haven't even heard of much scholarships that Multnomah offers.
College Junior 2013-01-03T23:07:18Z
Students at Multnomah are required to sign a contract that prevent them from drinking, smoking, or any sort of drug use. Multnomah has fun unlike any other college because students here are able to do it in complete sobriety!
College Junior 2013-01-03T23:00:47Z
The campus life of Multnomah is very healthy. It is a tight knit community bound together by the bond of Christ. Because of this the atmosphere is very uplifting and safe. There are many fun activities that are constantly going on around campus that don't involve drugs or alcohol. I do not believe there is a college with a healthier campus life!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
