    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.

    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!
