I am currently attending Portland Community College (PCC) and I absolutely LOVE IT! I have gone to different community colleges, and nothing has compared to PCC. The campuses are spread out through different parts of the metropolitan area of Oregon. Each giving you a different vibe/taste of this beautiful state. The educators are all so passionate about what they do, you genuinely feel their determination to teach you. PCC is such a wonderful, versatile school, and as a student I only wish to invest in the best education for myself, and PCC has made that possible.

Good college with some great professors and some bad ones. Best cheap option in the area! People are very nice but very opinionated. Biases are very apparent in all classes and you must agree or everyone on campus has no care for you. Advisers and staff are very helpful in finding jobs on campus as well as getting your degree quickly. Campus is outdated, and needs to be power washed badly but it is kept up the best they can. Parking is absolutely horrible. You have to get to campus at least two hours early to find a spot if you have a class that starts after 9am.
With the exception of one or two classes that weren't a great fit, I've been very happy with PCC so far. I am primarily at the Cascade Campus, but all campuses have excellent accommodations and resources for students. Whether it is free tutoring, academic guidance or help with homework from the writing center or math center, social support from the Queer Resource Center or Women's Center, or the free food pantry, PCC has plenty of resources for their students. I'm a disabled student, and the disability office has gone above and beyond to assist me in my academic career. All of my professors have been accommodating as well. Not to mention there are a ton of clubs to check out too!
