I've been thinking of moving to the Portland, Oregon area. I want to attend a community college around the Portland-Vancouver Area and also I've been thinking about Seattle, WA too. I want to move away from California. I need a new start.
I love Portland! It great! It has a bunch of cute little banquettes for shopping beautiful mountains and the river is amazing! and A great place to make a fresh start!
Portland is a cool place for a college student to live. CC tuition is higher here than it is in CA- About $900 per quarter. If you like doing online classes, consider enrolling in Salem’s community college, Chemeketa. They have a lot of online offerings. If you want to live in Portland, Portland CC is a good/large cc and has 3 campuses. Mt. Hood is in Gresham, just outside of Portland, and is a very nice campus as well.
Portland is a great place. I moved here when I turned 18 from the Bay Area. It’s much more affordable here.
I think I read somewhere that PCCs credits are non-transferable to UofO and Oregon State. I’m not sure though, so you might want to look into that if you were thinking of transferring to a university after your general ed is done.
In my opinion, Portland would be the BEST place you could move, it’s SO beautiful for a big city..
portland is a great city. there are good areas and bad areas. but its a pretty much a great place to live.
Portland rules! Especially night life is awesome http://www.2findlocal-portland.com/night-life-portland-or.html
I am interested in moving to Portland after hearing good things from friends and researching the city on several websites. I think the positive definitely outweighs the negative. Good luck!!
The following websites will give you info about Portland, including the local universities:
Since your from California and it is probably always warm, I would say go ahead. I’m from portland and I personally don’t like it here because it rains every other day and Im sick of it, but I really don’t know how people from out of state view rain. If rain is not your thing than I do not suggest going up to going up to Seattle…
I’ve been living in Portland all my life. Portland, Oregon is my favorite place in the world! It’s beautiful, clean, the weather is beautiful, and we just get a little of everything. Come to Portland, you’ll be so happy you did!
My mom chose Portland instead of Seattle as a medical student, she is so glad she made that choice. In my opinion, Portland is better than Seattle, way prettier!
