Blake Red Elk


Position: Admissions Counselor

Hometown: Walters, OK

Alma Mater:  Cameron University, BA Speech Communication

Academic interests: My interests have always revolved around leadership and interpersonal communication. Learning how different people communicate with each other in different cultures and in different settings is something I have found to be useful in all facets of my life.

Favorite Thing About PSU: PSU blends the smaller classroom advantage of a smaller learning institution with the additional educational opportunities that might only be afforded to a larger learning institution. Portland State is the best of both worlds.

Favorite Thing About Portland: I love the fact that every person in the city of Portland has the opportunity to contribute to the culture of the city. There truly is a place for everyone in Portland!
