What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school. Out of the two years I have attended I have had a nearly 99% success rate with teachers and classes, and I really feel that, even though it is a small, community college, students are still offered a great sense of family and respect throughout the multiple campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before I began at a community college, I felt the disappointment from others pour over me. I had heard that community college is not as good of an education as an university, that only people who don't have a good plan go there. But now that i have been there, I have seen and felt quite content with my education. The professors are warm, welcoming, and come to office hours. They respond quickly to emails, know my name, and become trusted people. As for my peers, they are the non-traditional student, parents, working students, and people that already know what the career fields. It's valuable for me to have others who can share their experience with me. And I am glad that I chose this school because I have felt taken care of and valued.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland Community College is dedicated to their students and frequently works hard to make sure we are all on track. Help is always available and academic advisers are ready to listen. With multiple campuses scattered around the Portland and Portland Metro area, there are several opportunities for students to achieve their dreams and get the degree they desire. At a low cost, PCC is affordable and is a great place to get started on bigger goals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Portland Community College is a very good school. There is a wide variety of classes across the Portland metro area and there is an option for online classes that anyone can take no matter where they live. There are also many programs for people who only want to attend community college and still want to have a successful career. The professors are really hit or miss at PCC. There are some good ones and some bad, but the reviews don't always correlate with how they actually are as a professor. The school is very accepting of the LGBTQ+ community. The major issue with this school is that some staff don’t accept students with disabilities. While the school is beginning to accept students with disabilities, they still aren’t perfect yet. Some professors don’t know that they can’t ask questions about a student’s disability, some staff don’t want to accept that others have disabilities, and some staff are just insanely rude to students with disabilities. They are working to get better at it, but they aren’t quite amazing at dealing with students with disabilities yet. Also, the food here isn’t very good. To end on a positive note, the online systems for PCC are very clear and easy to understand. It makes taking online courses and registering for class very manageable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Portland Community College has people of all backgrounds. In your classes, you'll find kids coming straight from high school AND older people resuming their education. The professors are very accommodating, for the most part. Of course, every school has their bad professors, but the professors here are more knowledgeable than others that I've seen. The class sizes are wonderfully small. The campus' are really spread out, so if you live in one area, it'll be hard to commute to more than one campus. Overall, a good experience for a community college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You would be shocked at the abundance of resources for anyone and everyone at PCC. The CONSTANT availability for help/ tutoring and the accessibility to professors is beyond what you may find at a University. I transferred to PCC from PSU and actually found I had BETTER classes and access to MORE equipment at a significantly lower price. PCC is the ideal college and location for students today who want to successfully start a career and get a degree at a decent cost without immediately taking on a load of debt! Great place to get prerequisites taken care of (you can even do a block transfer so you are 100% a junior when transferring to a UNI) The environments academically and socially are excellent. 10/10 would reccomend

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Top-notch performing arts program. There are good and bad teachers in every subject, so you've gotta pick the right ones (I looked at teacher reviews online). Beautiful, big campus with a big library and lots of resources. LGBTQ, Veteran, etc. support. Very liberal student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an affordable option compared to larger universities. The campuses are easily reached by public transportation or shuttles and the facilities are new and up-to-date. The instructors seem interested in teaching and my experience has been very positive. I feel that I've been challenged and have received a lot of constructive feedback and encouragement. The student body is diverse including a lot of working adults in classes so discussions are more diverse and reflect more life experience than a more traditional college setting.
