Retired Associates of PSU
A membership organization for anyone 50 and older, presenting programs of intellectual stimulation and fellowship.

RAPSU, which stands for Retired Associates of Portland State University, is a group of seniors who continue to have a zest for living and learning.
You do not need to have any previous association with PSU to join.

Imagine attending a recital by the lead cellist of the Oregon Symphony. How about students from the university's famed music department enacting a portion of their current offering? Or a geology professor telling us about this amazing state in which we live and play? Artists, political leaders, radio and television personalities from throughout the community share their knowledge.

We are sponsored by Portland State's tuition-free auditing program, the Senior Adult Learning Center (SALC).
