What are the dorms like on campus? What would you recommend students bring to their dorms?

I lived in an on-campus studio apartment with one roommate. It was a great experience. I was able to walk right onto campus and quickly to the city center. This allowed for me to go out in the evenings downtown.

How do you get to classes? Do you take public transportation, ride a bicycle, walk, etc.? Is the campus spread across large distances?

While attending PSU, I walked to campus mostly. I occasionally took Portland's various forms of public transit to get around the city. For MJC and Stan, I have needed my car to get around. All three campuses were manageable to walk across.

How do you balance your school work with any jobs that you may have throughout the year?

I have worked all throughout college. I set my schedule so that work has never come in the way of my studies. All of my employers have been understanding of this. While at PSU and Stan I have worked in admissions. Working on campus is convenient. I am also getting relevant work experience since I want to work in student services after graduation.
