Most Helpful Review for Portland Community College

I am definitely learning all I need and it is great. I was at first hesitant about going to a community college for the first year but I soon found out that that is not at all a problem. I thought classes at a University would be more informative and a better experience. Starting at a community college, especially PCC, is a great idea.

    The teachers here are always ready and willing to help you succeed. The students are from all different nationalities, backgrounds, and ages, so you'll get to meet lots of new people. This is a school that honestly wants to do good in your life rather than take your money.

    Portland Community College is a great way to continue your education as an adult. With online classes and dedicated instructors, PCC is the best community college in the Portland metro area. And the tuition is very fairly priced.

    PCC is a great way to start if you are unsure of what direction to go. They offer tons of classes and programs at an affordable price plus the grants will usually always be able to cover the price unless you are like me and max out on your credits.

    So far, PCC seems like a great school if you focus and get the right teachers. Everyone seems friendly, including teachers. It is a very independent based school.

    It's an easy place to feel comfortable in, it's not too different than high school. They also have this beautiful campus. And of-course it's not too expensive, but at the same time you can have great education and easy to get help from the students or the staff.
