4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at the moment is very little but so far its been great. Most people think that college is super scary but everyone pretty warm and welcoming which makes everyone comfortable.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It has been a good experience with a reasonable work load. I don't feel as though I'm missing anything by not being in a classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I am not familiar with any assistance they provide in finding employment.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have appreciated some really passionate teachers (History, Math, and Computer courses). They really love their work and you can tell.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel that the options available are basic. This is a community college and I do not believe it is better or worse than any other.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am taking online courses and most of the instructors are dedicated and have constructed a very informative curriculum. However, the politics have infiltrated some classes.

Overall Experience: I am a bit distracted by how often the college has been in national news for White History Month (April 2016) and very liberal leanings in the curriculum. White shaming took a whole month.

Academic Flexibility: This feedback is taking way too long right now. SORRY

Online Courses: I love the online classes, but I do not love the online system. I gave some feedback on overall education earlier, please read that comment also! Really, it should be full access mobile friendly site. The mobile site right now is very very limited in your functionality, which doesn't help if I am a student on the go trying to read the lecture notes as I wait at the doctor's office. But I think the teachers give us all of the resources, respond quickly, and grade fairly. However, the online classes have very little interaction. This does not help stimulate the education.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't really used the post-grad services yet. Maybe I will someday!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, it is the best that I can afford at this time. I'm not taking out loans, but I got started by having to pay in out of pocket then my employer compensated me for the tuition and all books when I showed them my grades. Part time school :)

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers that network with students, or classes that bring in guest speakers and allow students to connect professionally with, are the most immediate ways students can gain career prospects. Business is about people, so you should go out of your way to ask others about themselves. Don't forget that people like to talk about themselves a lot! Then, all you have to do is get connected on LinkedIn!

Academic Experience: At PCC I am completing my undergraduate pre-reqs for a Bachelors of Science, then transferring on to Portland State University School of Business program, majoring in Human Resources Management. At this time, I have had 3 full terms on campus and several terms where I worked completely online. If you can handle an old fashioned online classroom called D2L, you can get a flexible education on your off time at home by being an online student. You have to be willing to commit to the weekly homework hours to get it all done because the deadlines are not flexible. An aspect of the online learning is that I can do my discussion homework any time that I have my smart phone! I got used to checking D2L instead of my facebook. As for on-campus instructors, some are exceptional because they try to involve all learning styles. While there are outlier teachers once in a while that stick to their preferred style and many students struggle, but that was really rare with only 2-3 teachers of my 20+. Read Rate My Professor with some skepticism and try emailing the instructor if you're not sure. Most of them are really responsive even if you email late at night!

Overall Experience: Best CC that I have come across. I've attended MHCC - which feels unengaged and underfunded. PCC on the other hand makes it happen with a lot of student/staff engagement and on campus activities that are designed to be "extra." Like the Potty Press - you can get on campus upcoming events that happen M-Sun at varying times, and some events are free! They get all walks of life to come to campus by talking with the community and business leaders that come and give guest lectures that matter. I'm going to have a teleconference with Sam Adams about Climate Change this term. I'm excited to learn at PCC!

Academic Flexibility: I have not taken any classes yet because I just graduated high school

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't tried the online class but it would be very helpful somewhat in the future

5 College Junior

Career Services: I give out the best rating because I know I will use my knowledge to pursue my long term goals

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not taken any classes but went through orientation to see what college is like

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It all depends on how you see yourself into be a successful person and to have confidence that we can do anything

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: As I have stated before in my last review I haven't taken any classes yet at PCC

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have never really taken any class at PCC but I have visited and through and orientation and they really impressed on how many opportunities they give to their students abroad and on campus.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility at PCC has been phenomenal, you can easily schedule all your classes around your work and there is places to drop your kids off while in class.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I personally do not know about the online courses because I have not taken any. I know it is very difficult to sign up for online courses.

2 College Junior

Career Services: It is very difficult to get in touch with all the resources here at PCC and no one helps you with career options or course of study. I have been taking classes that I do not even need and I did not know it because the advisers did not help me when I asked for it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There has been a couple incidents with bad professors but that can happen at any college you attend. It is very important to understand that what you put in that is what you will get out, meaning if you are not trying your grades will show.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Unlike universities with sometimes 100 students in a class, PCC is conducive for intimate learning, with small class sizes that allow for good one-on-one instruction. Even though PCC enrolls some 83,000 students, the campuses are spread out so that there isn't too much crowding on one particular campus. Even then, though, parking can still be a problem, as it's the no. 1 thing students list among their complaints about the school. 

In terms of students, you will find people from every walk of life at PCC, as the College draws students from all over. However, one drawback to students with the main goal of furthering their education is that it can be hard to make friends sometimes. Nevertheless, PCC students are still very friendly and welcoming; it's just that being a community college makes it so people come to class and then go home. PCC staff is very friendly, as well. Sometimes, you may see your instructor as not just someone teaching you, but someone you can go to as a mentor and friend. Instructors are usually very interested in the general success of their students.
