Portland, known as the "City of Roses" for its rose-friendly climate, is a vibrant city of 647,805 people. It is home to Powell's City of Books, a large collection of public art, famous Voodoo Donuts, and is known as one of the most environmentally-friendly cities in the world.

The New York Times calls Portland "hard to resist" for its blend of city and nature. From campus, you can see Mount Hood, and within a short drive of campus are beautiful Pacific Northwest hiking trails.
