Every year, I go to at least 10 college fairs and I have been an admissions counselor for 4 years so you can bet that I’ve heard every question under the sun. I get common questions about course offerings, student body size and test score requirements, and the occasional unusual question like “what do they serve in the cafeteria?" College fairs are a great opportunity for you to connect with different colleges and universities to find the right fit for you and further your understanding of the admissions process. It is my job to talk to you about the opportunities Portland State University offers and guide you toward making the right choice for your future.
I’m a Portland native and am very close to my family, so my decision to attend PSU was driven by my personal connections to my city and the people I love. I know many of you are going through the process of deciding on your college, which means you’re making a decision that will impact your next four years and the rest of your life. I’m sharing with you the reasons I chose Portland State University and looking back to last year when I was making my decision.
