Guide to PSU
PSU: A quick guide
There's a lot to learn during your first week at college. And that's before you set foot in a classroom. Here is a quick guide to help youâ€”a CliffsNotes to Portland State, so to speak, so you don't have to learn this stuff the hard way. (Oh, what? You're suddenly interested?)
No matter what you need during the first week, or anytime during your PSU career, there's someone who can probably help. Just ask!
PSU is doubling the number of advisers later this fall, making it twice as easy to get free advice about classes, campus resources and just about anything else. You don't even have to make an appointment: the Undergraduate Advising & Support Center offers drop-in hours.
If you need advice on paying for school, head over to the Financial Aid office.
Sick? Injured? Down in the dumps? The Center for Student Health and Counseling can help.
The campus map has all the info you need to find the classes you registered for. (You did, right?) Getting to campus is just as simpleâ€”if you know all your options.
PSU has hundreds of bike racks, two new bike garages, and a new on-campus repair shop.
For an occasional trip off the public transportation grid, try Zipcar, a car-share service that offers discounts to PSU students. Cars are parked in several spots on campus.
Alison Mondragan (MIM ’12) will be representing PSU’s MIM program at this year’s TEDMED conference in DC, April 10th-13th, as a delegate.
