    My tips for prospective students are many. First, don’t be afraid to nag your professors. Often we want to get on a professors good side but ask as many questions as you can! Even if it annoys them. You pay for the course so don’t be afraid to get your moneys worth. Next, do your research about programs and don’t rely on your advisor. Not going to lie, they tell you what you want to hear not what will help you move forward. Since classes are small, make friends even if you just want to study with them. It will help you tremendously and information will stick better. lastly, enjoy your time alive. Don’t get caught up with education, it’s not everything. It’s a plus if you have a higher education but don’t make it your life. Enjoy your young years and live in the moment!

    It is important to prepare the student well before the tests long enough to arrive at the appropriate method, and to prepare before the tests enough to benefit the student in raising the level of concentration and stability on more than one method of study and comprehension . Wake up when people sleep! Some students find that sitting on the desk and studying all day until sunset is not useful, and does not make the student benefit sufficiently. If you are one of these students, you can make some changes, for example to make the study time at night instead of the day, Usually in the summer it is very hot, while at night the atmosphere is more pleasant, and the evening is quieter and less noisy than the day, you can also eat a meal before you start the study, and will make you feel energetic and energy to study.

    Hands down, PCC has one of the most sweetest caring and best teachers ever. So far I am off to a great start and I couldn't be happier thanks to the immense amount of support that I have been receiving for my instructors. Can't wait to get more involved in my school to better my experience for PCC offers so many opportunities for everyone to get involved!

    Take advantage of as many leadership opportunities as you can. You can work for ASPCC (student government), the Women's Resource Center, the Multicultural Center, or the Queer Resource Center. Not many people apply to those positions, so the process isn't too difficult. PCC also presents several volunteer opportunities, such as with the annual Winter Powwow, and volunteering for these events can sometimes make you eligible for scholarships that others cannot apply to. The school has its own internal scholarship process and there is roughly a ~50% chance that you will obtain one simply for applying. I obtained a $2,500 scholarship after only spending a few hours on my application. It's pretty easy to obtain a scholarship since NOBODY applies. One of the ladies who run the scholarship process was a speaker at one of my classes here and said that sometimes they have scholarships that simply aren't given out since no one applied to them. If you're planning on transferring to a school that isn't Portland State University, you may have to do a lot of work and research on your own. Academic advisors generally assume everyone is going to attend PSU and at times cannot help students who are applying to other schools. If you are hungry, there are food pantries that students can take advantage of. The Sylvania campus also has food vouchers. Also, as always, register for classes as early as possible! They fill up very quickly.

    Do your homework don't procrastinate it, its easy once you sit down and start. Also speak to your advisors of all kinds! They are there to help you and really know what they're doing! The teachers are also really understanding if you go and talk to them responsibly about any troubles you could have.
