What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
The University of Portland is a lovely small school. It is religious, however it isn't oppressively religious. The professors are competent as well as helpful, a few are downright hysterical.
Micah from Gig Harbor, WA
Everyone on campus is there to help you succeed and feel at home. The atmosphere is comforting and energetic. The courses all intersect at some point and this allows students to make connections and learn as much as possible through the courses.
