Erin Jensen: Your Senior Admissions Counselor
Hometown: Boise, ID
Alma Mater: Western Washington University, BA Visual and Material Culture
Academic interests: My academic interests have always been focused on the intersection of creativity and culture—and how this can be a stepping off point for learning about the value of community. That’s one of the reasons why I was drawn to working at PSU; not only are these strong subjects taught in classrooms here, but they are key values embraced by the university and the city.
Favorite Thing About PSU: I think of PSU as vibrant, energetic institution that has continued to grow and improve beyond expectations. I see this embodied in our students and staff, who have so much passion for innovation, creativity, and a genuine love of experiential learning. What better setting to put this passion to good use than the bustling, funky, cutting-edge city of Portland?
Favorite Thing About Portland: I love that Portland prides itself on being quirky and welcoming to such a wide range of interests and types of people. Not too many cities can say there’s a TV show that pokes fun at their residents—and think it’s funny, too.
