My time at Portland State University was amazing. I began taking classes on campus, as I had a job that allowed me to work during the day, and take classes in the afternoon and evening. All of the resources available on campus made for my time there very enjoyable. The atmosphere on campus is very relaxing, and allows students to learn in an environment that is comfortable and supportive. The staff at PSU was phenomenal. Any and every questions or concerns I may have had were answered in a timely manner, and gave me a sense of relief.
