Online Courses: I enjoy the flexibility of the on line environment. If a test or assignment needs to be opened (available early) it isn't a problem. Communication with the professor and peers is easy. On line classes are great, but you need to be disciplined.

Student Body: There is a diverse student body, this diversity seems to be not only accepted but welcomed.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition and financial aid process was pretty straight forward. I rated this "an OK" because I believe attaining education is over priced.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I haven't looked into theses resources

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The major I am pursuing has limited class options and the classes are only offered at one campus location. This is not entirely uncommon in this particular field of study.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I can do most college business on line, from registration to ordering supplies. There are also many on line class options.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are plenty of resources at the different locations.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There could be more evening classes to choose from. Sometimes you only get one choice and it's not at the nearby campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small classes sizes, majority of teachers are great. Most of the programs are great with no extra classes that have nothing to do what you are studying

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been really great. The occasional person who is much too dry and only reads from the slides.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far it's been really good at school, as I feel with all education it costs far too much. It limits who can go.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: They are run very well, so far I've only taken a math course and a art course online. They advance my degree but do nothing for my career of choice.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Very diverse since it's a community college. Still tends to lean more white due to it being in Portland.

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.
