PCC has a very exciting activities calendar for international students! PCC faculty, staff, and all students are welcome to join. Check out the exciting things we have planned! Below is a sample of events, we coordinate for international students, and at the bottom of the page is our current activities calendar and contact information.
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.
Downtown Portland is a lively place and there is much to see and do. On this day, we visit famous places such as Pioneer Courthouse Square and Waterfront Park on the scenic Willamette River. We take a ride on the MAX Trains and see the statue Portlandia. Then, we go shopping at Pioneer Place.
Coffee Hours are great opportunities to meet other international and American students and the International Education staff. Each of the three campuses has these fun opportunities to make new friends and share cultures.
The Halloween Party is a very popular event because of the activities and good food! Face painting and pumpkin carving are just two of the things we do. Prizes are given for the best costumes.
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!
Cinco de Mayo
The fifth of May is celebrated in Portland with a huge festival at Waterfront Park. Mexican food, fun, music, and dancing will keep you going from morning until night.
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.
