    Unsatisfactory, rude and unethical teachers, Snobby and arrogant Professors, with education levels of a Catholic Junior High and High School. Over confident, undereducated, over degreed educators who think they can treat people with disrespect and disdain, with no regard to the facts regardless of the situation. PSU is an overpaid institution of individuals all walking around wearing masks , covering up real truth behind the shrouded blankets of lies and financial heartache- instead of helping good valued people who are intelligent hardworking regular folks who want an education to live by, but rather produces a bunch of stuck in a trench, over pushed, unnecessary education- in a place of hope, leaving behind hundreds of over degreed, undereducated, barista's in a city of LOST hope and despair - filled with hopelessness, unemployment, and thousands of PSU degree holders all lounging around, smoking pot, living off welfare and food-stamps- in a state filled with wannabees, dreamers, and drifters, that makes a seventh generation Oregonian want to leave as fast as possible- being pushed out of my own state by OUT of Towner's who shouldn't be here in the first place- and clog up our streets with bad drivers, raise rent and forces locals out of their own areas- causing unwanted diversity in a place where we like to keep things the way they should be, with Morals and Ethics, Values beyond what Portland State teaches, or has the capacity to teach. read full review
