        The University of Portland creates an excellent community that focuses on real world problems and solutions. Fostering new relationships on a global scale, the University utilizes highly effective lessons to engage students and push them to competitively explore their surroundings, asking "why?" and developing solutions. During my time at UP I was challenged to work in my community, both local and global to develop connections, critically engage, and promote change within faulty structures and become a steward for embracing diversity. You work with real people, in a real world. The University of Portland pushes you to think beyond your wallet. The world is bigger than ourselves, and success is not just measured by your paycheck whether you study business, medicine, biology, chemistry, literature, engineering, communication, theatre, or the arts-- what you do to give back to the world and care for your community both foreign and domestic define quality, success, and the effectiveness of your skills. UP creates the foundation of you journey and pushes you to your limits, but in the end, it is your motivation that produces success. A wonderfully engaging institution, and highly rated educator.

        My theory is that the primary factor that motivates people to go to the University of Portland is the drive to do outstanding work. When I went to UP, classes were charged with energy from the students and professors, each demanding more from each other, and fostering a competitive and highly effective learning environment. I have applied lessons and skills from the University of Portland in every successful project and endeavor I have undertaken in the past six years. I have no doubt that what I learned at UP will have a positive impact on me for the rest of my life.

        A community of fellow scholars in all types from all walks of life that are given the opportunity to explore their career paths and take different avenues -- and be successful. The ability to take courses and have recognition that many students are working full time made the journey from nursing to a Masters in Marketing an success.
