Spending Spring Break in town

If you are staying in the Portland metro area over Spring Break, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy the sunshine and warmer weather. Free events around the Portland State campus include financial wellness information, career workshops, and student exhibitions.

There are many cultural institutions and gardens around Portland to visit during the break. This guide for students lists places to visit off campus. You may be able to explore these institutions for free with a culture pass from your local public library. Multnomah County Library, Clackamas County Library, and Washington County Library (WCCLS) have passes available to explore places like museums and cultural centers around town. These provide free admission, and often cover admission for groups of people or families.

We hope you enjoy your break, Vikings. We look forward to seeing you at the PSU Library!
