    Portland Community College has a variety of resources and services for students. For instance, PCC has a free tutoring and writing center, food banks, multicultural centers, queer centers, women's centers, and free shuttles. Also, PCC has a lot of club activities and events. I feel PCC is a kind and comfortable environment for everyone.

    McMurry social life stands out for having very open and nice people. Facilities are a bit outdated but are slowly developing into new modern facilities. Accommodation is not that good. Dorms are very old.
