Students and Culture
What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?
Based on 5 Reviews
Alumni
Rhetoric & Media Studies, Class of 2014

Largely dedicated students who are encouraged to discuss and engage with course materials. Students are often drawn to the college by its proximity to all that Portland has to offer—lots of concert-goers to be sure!

Young, social justice oriented, urban, outdoorsy. Maybe a little oversensitive.

Facilities
What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

International Affairs, Class of 2012

some dorms are old and have issues, computer labs are up to date and clean, classrooms are mostly new and nice

Rated January 2016
Alumni
Rhetoric & Media Studies, Class of 2014

Dorms are pretty basic, but well-maintained, and the classrooms are mostly set up to allow for flexibility and opportunities to move between lecture-style and discussion-based work. Dining hall was remodeled recently, and it's all-you-can-eat, which is a plus, unless you're trying to fend off the freshman 15. Computer labs are good and open 24-hours with ID card access, and there's one lab in the library with InDesign, Photoshop, etc. and a handful of booths for video production with Final Cut.

Rated January 2016
