Here at Portland State Professional Sound...

We've been involved in bringing music to campus for almost 40 years. Since our founding we’ve grown, gone dormant, helped start KPSU and slowly morphed into the group we are now. Today, PSPS is a collection of students dedicated to bringing music to campus and then making sure it sounds as good as possible. We don’t stop at music either, wherever amplified sound can benefit students we and our speakers want to be there. So whether it’s a cultural showcase, a guest lecture or just a dance party with a DJ, if you need professional sound on campus give us a call.

We provide a Tuesday/Thursday concert series known as Live @ Lunch every week during lunchtime at PSU, either in the park blocks or in Parkway North in the Smith Memorial Student Union. As well as a partnership in the Parkway North series in Smith Student Union Thursday nights in collaberation with Portland State Programming Board and KPSU.

We function as a hands-on training ground for individuals interested in the live sound industry, while saving PSU students tremendous amounts of money and hassle dealing with private-sector sound companies. We are a student fee-funded group, offering paid positions for student sound technicians and volunteer opportunities for those hoping to learn about professional audio.
