PSU is humming this fall with nearly 1,000 more students living on campus, thanks to the opening of the University Pointe apartments. Joe’s Burgers, TartBerry frozen yogurt and Noah’s Bagels will open later this fall on the ground floor.
Riding the Portland Streetcar is now free to students and employees, just in time for the opening of the eastside loop on Sept. 22. Go to the transportation office for all your options, including discounted transit passes, secure bike parking, car sharing and parking permits.
Students have a new major medical insurance plan with better coverage and an option to waive out if you already have health insurance. The Center for Student Health and Counseling has all the details.
WHAT TO DO:
Don’t miss Party in the Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, a great way for new and returning students to get involved in student groups, rec clubs and other activities. Free food and entertainment, too!
Campus rec’s fall schedule of fitness classes, aquatics, outdoor programs and intramural leagues is online.
PSU opens its doors for to the community for more than 50 events from Oct. 4-14 for Portland State of Mind. Most events are free.
