Portland beauty, culture and lifestyle
It's not surprising that the majority of our residents remain in the Portland area following graduation. Surrounded by mountains, flanked by rivers and only an hour from the Pacific Ocean, Portland offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, from hiking and biking to vineyards and beaches. With snow-capped Mt. Hood just sixty miles to the east, Portlanders have access to one of the longest ski seasons in the country. Portland also enjoys a temperate climate with sunny, dry summers and mild winters. Residents live in any number of our diverse Portland neighborhoods based on their individual lifestyles -- whether it is in the close-in and hip Pearl District or in a suburban neighborhood in the greater metropolitan area.
