Over all I've been more challenged than I was in community college and have retained significant amounts of knowledge from professors here at PSU. Some of the departments are less organized than others, which docks a few letter grades for inconsistency.

One offense of smoking pot in the dorms can result in being kicked out of housing while still having to pay for the room for that year. Campus Public Safety has a large presence on campus.

Even though two of our best instructors left for another school I classes are very good. I think we are in the top 100 schools in the country. I like the fact that there is a graduate program for my field at PSU.

Many computer labs. Plenty of computers.. Rarely need to wait. We get 500 pages a quarter included. I have never run out.

School is located downtown. Plenty of food places and hangouts for study. PSU athletics are strong and I enjoy watching our football team. I'm 45 back in school for the second time. The average age at PSU is around 35-38 so I don't feel out of place. I think it's a great place to go to school.

The workload at Portland State feels overwhelming at some times, but I look back and realize that I have learned an immense amount while at PSU.

It's constantly raining here, however we just suck it up and get our umbrella, rain jackets and boots out and just endure it. However, when its nice out its really nice out and most people will be outside enjoying the weather.

Being in downtown Portland you have an unlimited amount of food options, which fast food restaurants, sit down restaurants, food carts which are surprisingly delicious, also many cafes!

Overall CPSO, which is campus public safety officers are in charge of all related drug safety which they are experts at. They can easily get rid of any drug related issue.

The only way to get you money's worth if you want to live anywhere near campus is to go in on a house with a bunch of friends, but living with 9 other people isn't for everyone.

It's really what you make of it. I, for one, don't really party much or drink.

Its pretty cool being a psychology major here at PSU. The different fields and classes are interesting and the work load is not that bad. The professors get you excited about the material that you and learning and they are always available to assist you if you ever should need help. There are also a lot of opportunities for internships.

I"m a Psychology major here at PSU and they have a variety of psychology classes. Its pretty cool.

Because PSU is dropped right in downtown there is a pleathera of options as far as dining. The food carts surrounding the school is mass amounts make up for the cafeteria food court that is located within the school, even though those options are terrible themselves.

Guys & Girls:
Primarily women and men at PSU are not concerned about their appearance or dress but rather their intellect. As a result there is high acceptance of differntiating lifestyles and people who are "different", almost embracing and encouraging them. PSU students are typically well-versed in academics, readers, and well-rounded. Superficiality is not readily found among PSU students.

After having been at PSU for almost two years, I barely see much of what our frats and sororities really do. Only just yesterday did I discover there is a fraternity for African-Americans.

In addition to academics, I would advise students to carefully review PSU's billing/fees; the university has added hidden, questionable charges including a mandatory health insurance fee of $1,500 a school year. Most students overlook these fees and are already covered by other policies. Be advised!!!
College Senior 2013-01-13T03:55:50Z
I feel satisfied with the academics and every that adds to my learning at PSU.

I love communications and I love the teachers and course material that involves.

Its an open campus so there isnt much the campus can keep completely under control

They have a lot of well known places to choose from (such as Einstein Bros.)

They offer a drug and substance free floor in one of the dorms.

Its great except for the meal plans offered. The food isn't that good.

I don't think that PSU is very strict when it comes to school policies. Since the campus is in the middle of the city, it doesn't have the traditional feel that other campus' have, so that may be a factor in their lax policies.

I was lucky to have a great experience with PSU's financial aid department. They were quick and effective in getting my application passed through. I have heard of others having different experiences, but mine has always been good.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
