I have loved my UP experience so far! My roommate and all the peers I have run into are decent people, if not really nice and friendly. Campus is small, which Is a bit of a personal negative, but it’s gorgeous and most of the time I am really thankful it’s so quick to get around. My professors have been friendly, genuinely passionate about their subjects and invested in my progress. The food is AMAZING for campus food - It regularly changes and encompasses different ethnic foods.
For the School of Education specifically, I can say the advisors are quirky and fun and up for casual check ins and in prompt to drop ins from their advisees. No where is perfect but I honestly can say I wouldn’t have chosen anywhere else.

There arw numerous amount of things I liked about U of P! I loved how they have a new rec center. I love the feel of college life even though it's a smaller university because it's a religious one. I love how there are so many different clubs there are. I also love the different jobs on campus there is and how you can do your school work during that time. In addition, I love how they have a church on campus so if you want to go to pray and/or go attend you can. What I do not like is how thry have a co-ed dorm on campus. I do not like how they have very low diversity in campus too. I wish there was a lot more diversity on campus. Overall, I gave it 4 stars because it is a great university and I hope I get in next summer!
University of Portland is perfect for students who want a vigorous curriculum, invested professors, and a cozy environment. The campus is absolutely stunning, with beautiful architecture and nature making up the grounds. The dorms quickly provide a sense of community, filled with abundant fun and friendship. The catering company that supplies all of the food establishments on campus does not really have a wide variety of options even if they claim to. Diversity is also something that could be improved upon; there is a severe lack of different varying background in both students and faculty.
