I love all the things you can do in PORTLAND! When I was in Portland I did a lot of HIKES in many different and beautiful places! It was easy to take trips to the Olympic Peninsula, Multnomah Falls, and Crater Lake.

My favorite activity was hiking in Forest Park and exploring PORTLAND as much as possible! I really liked the live music in Portland, too. The concert of “Megafaun” at Mississippi Studios was particularly amazing.
I came to PORTLAND only 12 days ago, but already I’ve had many good experiences. Every day I have a full life.

Many interesting places are close to downtown PORTLAND, so I totally enjoyed this city. Also I liked Tri-Met maxes and buses; they were very convenient. The best thing I did was go to the summer music festival at the Oregon Zoo!
People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.

In addition to studying, the school offers fun SCHOOL ACTIVITIES like the corn maze, NBA games, ski trips, and American holiday celebrations. Even the teachers participate! It is a great way to get to know each other.
I liked everything about PORTLAND! It has friendly people and beautiful nature. I could take trips to the mountains, Multnomah Falls and the Pacific Ocean. In Portland I could go to Washington Park, the Japanese Garden, OMSI.
