Portland Community College Reviews
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.
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!
Returning to college after ten years was scary for me, but PCC made it easy. There are multiple campuses throughout the Portland area with shuttles and buses, making it accessible no matter what part of town you live in. The bike rental program is an incredible deal: $15 gets you a bike, helmet, lights, and lock for the term and you can bring it in for free tune-ups! The PCC faculty and staff are friendly and helpful, creating a positive learning environment. I'd recommend PCC to anyone considering going back to school or starting fresh.
