“A great urban university”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

While I haven't attended classes here, I'm tracking PSU and I'm impressed. The academic offerings seem first rate and the campus is ideal in setup and location.

“Portland State”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Their positive attitude...interest in education rather than "hanging out at games and drinking" as some schools appear to value...interested in the welfare of students and community

“University in the city”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Portland State is a true urban university. It's spreading out more and more, but the park blocks are still the center of it all.

“I love my alma mater.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I like the flexibility of classes, including night & weekend course offerings, and the dedication of the professors there. There is a huge difference in the university depending on the department; the science dept is very strict compared with psychology, for instance. all-in-all, a great education.
