• Schedule a Campus Tour of MHCC


  • Campus ToursCome check out the sites, the layout, the people, and the campus culture of MHCC’s Gresham Campus by taking a guided tour led by our Student Outreach and Recruitment (SOAR) leaders. Whether you know MHCC is where you want to be or you’re curious about seeing a college campus in person, campus tours are an easy and fun way to see the College in action.

    During each term, we have set days and times throughout the weekday when campus tours are offered. MHCC’s spring term begins April 3, 2017. Please revisit this site beginning April 3, 2017 for a listing of our spring term campus tour days and times.

    In the meantime, please note that our campus tour availability will be limited due to our SOAR leaders being offsite for spring break. To inquire about a campus tour during the spring break, please contact our Student Recruiter, Rebecca Rodas, directly at 503-491-7168 or via email at Rebecca.Rodas@mhcc.edu.

    Individual Campus Tour FAQs:

    Can I drop in for a campus tour or do I need to schedule it in advance?
    To guarantee that we’ll have a SOAR leader onsite available to greet you and show you the sites, we do ask that all campus tours be scheduled at least one week in advance. We recognize that there may be situations where a one-week notice isn’t doable. If that’s the case, we ask that you please call our SOAR Office directly at 503-491-7701 to schedule the campus tour.

    Do you offer campus tours on the weekends or evenings after 5 p.m.?
    Our campus tour times are currently limited to the weekdays and during regular service hours of the College, as a campus tour tends to be a bit dull when offices are closed and most students and staff aren’t present. On occasion, we do host campus visits in the evenings and weekends with special arrangements, but do not currently lead individual campus tours during these times. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    How long does a campus tour take?
    If you want to see all of the sites, we ask that you plan for an hour. If you’re short on time, we will honor that and keep it to the length of time you’ve got available we only ask that you specify that on the Individual Campus Tour Request Form. If you just want to see a specific area, please add that to the form..

    Can my parent(s), sibling(s), relatives, partner, friend, mentor, and/or pet join me on a campus tour?
    Bring along any and all, except for the pet. Sorry, no animals are allowed on campus with the exception of Assistance Animals.

    If driving by car, do I need to get a visitor’s parking pass?
    Parking is FREE at MHCC, so no parking pass required! Once you schedule a campus tour, you’ll receive an email confirmation that includes parking details.

    Group Tour FAQs:

    Is a group tour different than an individual campus tour?
    Group tours are designed for groups of 5 or more students and often include an MHCC 101 presentation or Q&A session prior to or following a campus tour. Details of a group tour vary on group size, age range, and interests. Groups can request just a campus tour, but we still ask that you fill out the group tour request form. We also ask that group tour requests be made at least 2 weeks in advance.

    Is there a minimum or maximum group size allowed for group tours?
    The minimum requirement for a group tour is 5 students. If your group is larger than 60 students, we please ask that you give us 3-4 weeks’ notice so that we may make proper staffing arrangements.

    What information should I provide when requesting a group tour?
    Please provide the following info when filling out the group tour request form:

    • Requested Date(s) and Times (arrival & departure)
    • Group Size (number of students and Chaperones)
    • Grade(s) of Students in Group
    • Needed Accommodations
