    The food is honestly just very expensive, not very yummy, and not very good for you either. I think Sylvania in particular doesn't have that great food. From what I've heard, there's also a lot of waste (not very environmentally friendly!). There are a few issues regarding this and it may change in the future. Sylvania has a general American grill where you can get fried chicken, burgers, fries, and hot dogs. There is also an American Chinese place right next to it. The Rock Creek campus is better with food, but it's still not great. Not sure about the other campuses.

    The food diversity is great and not too expensive either, they actually teamed up with Starbucks to sell through their dinning halls too! Also there is free sushi at Cascade sometimes. Yum!

    The food and dining is decent for community college. There's enough places to sit around and eat. I believe the cafeteria closes at around 5-6pm though. So if you're taking late classes it kind of sucks... The food is pretty normal like pizza, burgers, chips, drinks, salads, desserts, and etc.

    Pretty typical college food. Not amazing, not terrible, but still overpriced. They also don't have microwaves on campus at Sylvania, so don't expect to bring much food other than sandwiches. Most eat-out options are hard to get to and from between class.

    The food is pretty good, it's really just like a little cafeteria on the campus. Since it is a small school, there isn't really many places to eat at. There are a couple of pizza shops in the neighborhood though.

    I haven't heard anything about Greek life, but that's not to say it doesn't exist at PCC. I would be surprised if it didn't because they usually have everything you can imagine available in the way of school support/activities.

    Portland has a Greek sector which offers many activities but as far as on campus unsure as to the extent that there is involvement.
