    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.

    Always get academic advising. If you are confused about anything, go ask someone in a student services or SCOM building. Always communicate with professors.

    as with any college, don't slack off. you're getting a quality education at community college tuition. if you're doing online classes make sure to go on at least a couple times a day as you're graded on participation as well.
