Tell us about your college experience.

College was a good experience for me, it was both challanging and interesting. My school was a good fit for me, and had a lot of good resources for a student.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

No I would not choose the same degree. It didn't help me find a job and I am not very interested in it any longer.

What advice can you offer other students?

Dont go to school unless you really have a desire to get something out of a particular degree--plan better before accumulating debt.

Despite of what you may have or haven't heard about PSU. One thing I would say is PSU is a great school offering many programs and having some of the best in the state. With it being the largest University in Oregon it's a school to 35,000+ students. That say's a lot, many students are choosing to go to school over others.

It is a diverse community with having students from so many different backgrounds. It's facilities are just amazing as well and the park blocks are a great place to study. The teachers truly want to see you succeed, you just have to want to be able to succeed, this is college not high school.

I'm looking for a master's degree program, and despite living a few miles from Portland State University, cannot bring myself to apply for PSU's MSW program. I am willing to move for a few years to study elsewhere. In the past 15 years of working in the mental health field, off and on, I've had co-workers or acquaintances who did not know each other who have told stories about unhealthy professors who insult and need to gain power over students, or who just needed to retire: nothing was gained in certain classes.

PSU's MSW program could be so much more. The admissions people who I talked to were rude and appeared distinctly uninterested in my interest in their university. One insulted my undergrad. college, which has a good reputation. It would be so easy for each of these departments to improve, yet for 15 years, I have heard the same things re: the MSW program, and the univ. in general.
