| I really enjoyed the quality of education I had at Portland Community. I went to the Sylvania campus, which was beautiful, had wonderful professors, and had by far the best course selection. It was a very enjoyable experience from an academic standpoint.|
I moved to Portland for my first year of college to try it out and see what the city was all about, and to be honest, I hated it. Portland is not the place for you if you're from a fast paced, east coast setting like I was, or if you're involved in political science for the bigger picture. I found that the students, much more so than the staff, adopted a know-it-all attitude, and refused to see the world past Portland. Portlanders are very snobby when it comes to their city, which isn't all that great to begin with. Plus, there was about zero diversity in the college, but being as the state of Oregon is 93% white, that's not surprising. That just really bothered me, especially since everyone was preaching tolerance, whilst ignoring the fact that there was very little diversity.All in all, a great place to go for academics, and a great place to be if you're a Portlander through and through. East coasters...go to Seattle.

| I went to PCC for two terms before transferring to a different school. I had a blast there...mostly Cascade Campus. All of my teachers were great, some exceptionally so. The Learning Center was a great resource and the tutors were generally cool. Overall...a great experience. |

| Portland Community college is not a great four-year institution by any means, but it does offer some challenging corusework and helpful instructors. Almost all of my professors are available during their office hours, and most of them give out secondary contact information that you can use to get ahold of them in a pinch. |
My biggest gripe about this school is the attitude of the students, who mostly seem uninterested in their education, and boast some generally low quality traits. There is NO social life here. It is a commuter campus, so most of the people attend class then promptly leave so there is no one to really talk to.I will be transferring after just two terms here. I cannot stand the social scene(or lack of?) and the attitude of most of the students.
