• Campus Tours

  • Whether you’re considering MHCC, are already enrolled or just want to step foot on a college campus, tours are a great way to observe the campus culture, learn about our programs, and see if MHCC is a good fit for you!

    We offer customization walking tours of the Gresham Campus led by Student Outreach and Recruitment leaders. Please allow yourself one full hour for a tour; however, we can shorten or extend the tour-time as needed. Feel free to bring the whole crew; parents, siblings, grandparents, friends and significant others are welcome!

    STEP 2: Sit back and wait for our SOAR leaders to send you a confirmation email with details on your guides name, check-in location, and parking.


    We make every effort to respond to visit requests within 1-2 business days. If you do not receive an MHCC campus visit confirmation via e-mail within that time, we recommend you first check your "junk mail" or "spam mail" folder for any correspondence from our office. If the email is not found, then we ask that you contact our SOAR Team so we can resend a new confirmation e-mail.

    Contact our SOAR Team at 503-491-7701 or Student Recruitment Coordinator at 503-491-7228. We can also be reached via email at SOARTeam@mhcc.edu or Jessica.Ruiz@mhcc.edu.

    Campus Visits of 10+ Students:

    To adequately accommodate your campus visit request, please note that we do require at least a two-week notice of any campus visit requests for tours of 10+ students.

    We offer customizable campus visits multiple times a week, which include “MHCC 101” presentations (covering our steps for getting started, program offerings, ways to pay, and student services) Q & A panels with current students and campus tours!

    STEP 1: For campus visit requests for 10+ students, please contact our Student Recruitment Coordinator directly to identify desired dates, sites to see, and a tentative itinerary to make sure your campus visit is a match to your interests: Jessica.Ruiz@mhcc.edu or by phone at 503-491-7228.

    STEP 2: If seeking to schedule a Planetarium Show during your campus visit or wish to coordinate a lunch on campus, please notify our Student Recruitment Coordinator ( Jessica.Ruiz@mhcc.edu or 503-491-7228) who can get you in touch with the needed campus contacts!
