I can honestly say that I have never felt so well taken care of academically. All of the teachers here are dedicated to their job and to the students. They go out of their way to make sure that every student is keeping up with the material. The class sizes are small enough that you become friends with your professor. You get to know them, they get to know you. You form a relationship based not only on learning, but on interaction.

    The University of Portland is a small, Catholic university in North Portland and is located in a great spot- close to downtown but in a quiet neighborhood with gorgeous pine and cherry trees. Everyone is pretty friendly, but there is definitely some of the snobbishness that comes with going to a small private institution. The classes are challenging and typically small- about 15 to a class with most of the courses being discussion based or hands-on rather than lecture setting.

    If you have the money to attend here, do it! The professors truly care about your progress in class and your mental health. And the advisors are really caring people, if you need to see them the next day because of emergency reasons, they'll make the time.

    University of Portland has a very nice campus with quite new buildings. Most of their buildings are very modern and have a lot going on inside. Also, their dorm life is spectacular, because they are very close with each other.

    A small campus in a wonderful location, the University of Portland is full of friendly staff and students. Professors are very approachable and reasonable. I have always felt challenged yet comfortable, which in my opinion is a good place to be.

    All of the faculty is there to help you succeed. The wifi is spotty at best (especially around finals), so bring a USB stick ALWAYS. A welcoming, pleasant group of people on this campus.

    UP is a thriving community in which the academic and extra-curricular opportunities available foster your intellectual, mental, and spiritual growth. Its core values are Teaching and Learning, Faith and Formation, and Service and Leadership and the faculty, staff, and students truly embody these values. The Business, Nursing, and Engineering schools are heralded as the best in the region.

    Small school in all the right ways. Intimate class settings make it easy to stay engaged. High quality of professors in all fields of learning.

    University of Portland is the friendly, and while it is progressing - having just added gender identity to the nondiscrimination policy - it has a long way to go. It is the small conservative pocket in the largely liberal city of Portland, but it's still not as conservative as other private institutions.

    An amazing school with a beautiful Campus, University of Portland overlooks downtown and provides a great sense of community. The people are all very nice and it is not surprising when the person in front of you holds the door open or says hello. The small teacher to student ratio also allows for individual attention and makes it easy to succeed.
