Admitted Student Questions: Student Life

Life as a college student is unlike anything else. Besides the growth you will experience academically, you will get to know the paths you want to explore for the rest of your life. The best way to find these paths is to get involved with your university. Here are the most recent questions we’ve received around student life at Portland State University.

Peter’s Story: A Bias for Political Action

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.
