I am pleased with it, overall. The distance learning aspect has not bode well for a lot of students these past several months, but it is manageable, I suppose. My professors are easily accessible by way of email, and the classes are small, which makes it easier to reach out to and receive feedback from them directly.
Very safe and nice place to start college. Everyone is very welcoming and the food is alright and sold at a decent price. I recommend the fries they are delicious. Affordable tuition as someone who regularly takes 16 credits per term. Around $2500 or well below so you can afford it. Lots of clubs to dabble in and you can easily access professors during office hours. Just make sure to check Ratemyprofessor for a successful term.
PCC is a great college for students straight out of high school who either aren't sure what they want to major in, or are unready to move out to a four year college. The tuition is a fraction of what you would have to at a state university. The professors are knowledgeble in their subject and eager to help students.
Overall a good community college to start off with. I absolutely love the ceramics program. I would also strongly recommend any class ran by Dr. Byrd.
Students and staff are very diverse and accepting. I went to PCC for just over 3 years and not once did I hear of or experience any kind of discrimination.

If I could go back in time and tell myself about college life, I would tell myself to enjoy senior year a lot more. I would enjoy the walks down the halls, the bells chiming and warning us that we are late for class, and enjoy the slow pace at which students take to get to class. College atmosphere is very different, students are rushing to go to class & classes move at a fast pace. I assume this is because education is no longer free and hundreds of dollars are being spent for an education. So if I could go back in time I would tell myself to enjoy (responsibly), my last year as a high school student and leisurely make the transition to an adult in college.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that they have multiple campuses spread throughout the city and adjacent suburbs. Courses are offered at different campuses, which sometimes results in having to travel all over town each day.
PCC is a positive learning environment at a reasonably economic price.
The best thing about Portland Community College is that the class size are smaller, hence it let the students get one-on-one with the proffesors. Second, there is someone who is always willing to help. Third, the tuition is low so it gives students a chance to go to school.
Very economicaly friendly money to education value and i love its loction
The parking situations, really hard to find parking unless you show up before the school opens or late in the afternoon
Anyone who would like to get a good education for a descent price per credit hour. The instructors are helpful and the classes are a lot of fun.
P.C.C. has a very diverse student body.
Allowing any aged human being to persue their dreams and reach them. There is no holding back, only pushing forward at Portland Community College. Getting you ready to succed in having an Associates or Transfer Degree to a 4-year college to continue on with your dreams.
Portland Community College is trying to be a non-smoking public school, so if you can't quit smoking, don't attend this school.
Well, this will be my last term at PCC because I'll be attending a very expensive cooking school in Portland. So of course I'm always bragging about the amazing food court!! There are so many places to eat with great food.
I feel that Portland Community College has a great student body. Everyone is respectful of each others learning environment. There is quite a diversity of age groups attending PCC. It's very easy to make new friends because everyone is so nice. It's rare that someone will not open a door for you. A very respectable student body, the professors are great, and the campus is lovely.
There are many clubs, teams, and organizations at PCC. Unfortunately, I have no time to appreciate them because I have to go to work after school. Dating at PCC is a lot like any other colleges. People meet, they hang out together, hold hands, but are respectful to others around. I have not heard of any parties at PCC. I feel that the college environment is more mature than other colleges. There are plenty of restaurants off campus, I find it a great way to meet up with friends and study.
