University of Portland; Portland, OR
Hometown: Boise, ID
Major: Nursing“The University of Portland creates its own community on The Bluff. I compete in Cross Country and Track. Even though we are in a large school division for sports (NCAA Division I), we have the feel of a small school. You can go anywhere on campus and find someone to talk to or hang out with. Classes are small, and your professors want you to succeed. Nothing can be better than getting on a first name basis with a professor and being noticed in a class.”
