ASPCC stands for Associated Students of Portland Community College. We are students of PCC employed part time by the Student Activity Fee to be the voice for the student community. Being students ourselves, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and world views, we understand the hardships that students go through while trying to achieve their educational and life goals. We are here to help you during your journey.

ASPCC Sylvania operates on a General Student Council Forum, where student leaders all have a voice to share their diverse ideas and concerns, providing student services and advocacy. Feel free to visit us to take a look at the projects we are working on.

Brice Medinger | Student Organizer | He/Him/His

 

The first impression many people (Including Myself) get about ASPCC is that we’re just another useless bunch of bureaucratic do-gooders who only care about looking good and feeling important, but never actually getting things done.


And l am proud to say I couldn't have been more wrong.


Never in all my years have I seen a group of people so immensely dedicated to improving the lives of others. Through our immeasurable diversity, shear strength of will, and the pure drive of love we feel for our community, we tirelessly work to make every PCC student’s lives better. For myself personally, I can think of no greater joy than knowing the work I do every day helps my people to succeed.


And you, the folks reading this, our little PCC family, are my people.

Therefore, I’m more passionate than ever to advocate for the students and our community. Please feel free to come and share with me your stories in CC102.
