The wi-fi is horrible. To use the internet takes forever to load if it even does. There are a lot of computer labs and places to print. Each semester students get $10 of printing money and if you go over that you do have to pay to print on the school printers.

I like the fact that most of my teachers know me by name and encourage students to come to their office hours. Being a small school there is not a lot of diversity in the classes offered.

Health & Safety:
There is always P.Safe people driving around and always willing to help out.

The food is expensive and they keep raising prices because people steal food. The same food is served pretty much every week so after a while eating at the Commons gets tiring. The Cove does have very good wraps.

Parking permits cost about $100.00 for the year. If you park somewhere without a permit you may get a ticket. There is not that many parking spaces, but there really is not that much need for a car since there is so much public transportation.
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:10:38Z
There are metro bus stops right outside the campus
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:09:09Z
Campus is near neighborhoods, so houses are available
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:06:41Z
Health & Safety:
Safety is definitely important and university officers patrol campus
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:05:31Z
Great overall experience and atmosphere at this school
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:03:43Z
There is a very strict policy on drug use
College Freshman 2013-12-01T00:00:53Z
Printing is available in the library, labs, and all dorms

You need a car or to take the bus but downtown portland has great food - a pricey but very good.

Guys & Girls:
Most people are in relationships either at UP or another college. Random hook-ups are nothing passed making out at a party. Most people are fairly nice but guys and some girls are geeky/hipster. No real true jocks or overly out there girls. Fairly average on both ends. The few that are the exceptions are fairly over rated or obsessed about it. Lots of singers and musicians as well as people who enjoy outdoor activities. Most dates will probably studying, at the commons, or hiking.

Some parties here and there, but you have to search or know someone if you want to get in or know where it is in the first place. Don't expect a party to last past midnight though - public safety or the police will shut it down. Junior/senior year gets better though

Rain, rain and more rain! It's the PNW so be ready. However, recently it's been more extreme - hot in the spring/fall and very cold in the winter.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:57:38Z
Portland is a fun and funky city but you either love it or hate it. It's fits a certain type of person. Tax free shopping as well as downtown being very close which is nice.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:56:23Z
Lots of parking, no one who lives on campus usually has a car. If you pay the fee, you can park anywhere on campus and most dorms have parking very close which is nice. Freshman are not allowed cars however. Sometimes you can bring your car anyways but if they happen to see it doesn't have a sticker, you will get a ticket. It's all about luck with that.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:54:32Z
Some dorms are nice, some need to be remodeled. It's all on lucky and where you get placed freshman year. If you don't like your dorm, the chances of you going somewhere else without getting "pulled in" by someone who already lives there is slim to none. Each dorm has a unique identity and you have to chose what's right for you as best you can - make sure and ask current/past students as well as visit on the overnight pre-frosh weekend.

The business school is challenging but the classes are very specific. If you don't know what you want to do by mid sophomore year, you're in trouble with keeping on track. Very specialized curriculum as well. They help with internships but it's more about if you've got the personality and skills - as well as knowing someone in the industry you're interested in. Small classes are always nice and you get to know your profs and vice versa. Workload is tough and a lot but doable.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:52:15Z
I had a great paid internship but I got it completely outside of the school.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:48:59Z
Bus lines in multiple parts of campus that can get you anywhere in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable price - example downtown portland. Cars are nice but not needed by any means.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:47:40Z
I would have rather gone somewhere larger with more choices and diversity. However, UP fits a certain type of student very well.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:46:57Z
Great food compared to most colleges! Fairly large variety and good options for whatever you taste it. However, very overpriced and expense.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:46:03Z
Again, zero tolerance policy for some things but it's changing to be more accepting and a learning experience then scaring the students to not use them.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T04:44:31Z
UP is a wet campus but you MUST be 21. Some dorms are very strict on drinking, others are not it all depends where you live. If you're respectful and smart, you will most likely not get in trouble. There are intervisitation hours and members of the opposite sex are not allowed in one's dorm past a certain hour - you will get written up if caught! But again, certain dorms are different. There is an absolute zero drug tolerance policy - you will be suspended or asked to leave the university and they're pretty good at finding out who is connected to who. Public Safety is nice to you if you are nice to them, simple as that.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
