Moving to college to live on campus is a great decision. It connects you to your university, encourages involvement and helps support your academic success (not to mention being affordable and convenient!) But for many, this will be the first time living away from home. It’s a big step and it can be intimidating. We know you have a lot of questions and we’re here to help.
Peter Wedlake realized his career path when he volunteered with the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign in high school. That experience convinced him that he was passionate about politics. Currently at Portland State University, he studies Political Science and Urban and Public Affairs, with a minor in Economics. Peter is also a third-generation alumnus of Portland State University! We love to hear about connections through family.
Here at Portland State University, we know that diversity is an essential part of student learning and education. The Diversity and Multicultural Student Services (DMSS) is a resource available to all students that honors the diversity of all people by providing resources, assistance and community.
Let’s be honest, there are a lot of steps until your first day as a university student. You have done a lot of work already...and you deserve to be celebrated! That’s where Admitted Student Webinars come in.
At my last job, when I told people how I made a living, they would invariably exclaim, “Wow! That must be the best job in the world! I’ve always wanted to do that.” People from all walks of life are always up for a little recreation and diversion, perhaps some exercise or just quiet time away in nature. For 15 years I was a park ranger, patrolling ocean beaches of the Pacific Northwest. Now I am a student in the Graduate Teacher Education Program, focusing on secondary education, at Portland State University.
We are proud to announce our brand new Virtual Tour!
