Sample of Events
The beach trip is an all-day outing to the northern Oregon coast. The beach is beautiful any time of the year, and we enjoy walking on the beach, eating clam chowder at a beach-side café, and shopping in a typical oceanside town.
Talk Time Cafe
Cafe hours are great opportunities to meet other international and American students and the International Education staff. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and share cultures.
Movie Day is a favorite activity for many international students at PCC because of the different choice of popular movies. Afterward, we often get together at nearby coffee shops and talk about the movies we have just seen.
The ski trip takes place during Winter Term when the weather conditions are most favorable for snow sports. If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding, you will definitely want to be part of this experience. If you have never seen snow, here is your chance!
International Education Week
The International Education Week at PCC happens during the third week of November. It is a celebration of the PCC international students, faculty, and staff living in this global community.
International Student Club
PCC has international student clubs on all three campuses. These clubs promote diversity and cultural understanding. F-1 International and American students as well as PCC staff work together to celebrate all the international cultures in our community.
