Since I was a freshman in 2009, food services have improved considerably. The traditional, buffet style dining hall offers rotating meals at several stations, along with always having the staples such as grilled cheese, grilled chicken, hamburgers w/fries, create-your-own pasta dish, and sandwiches. Soy milk is readily available, and the coffee and tea stations are very good. Yes, there are to-go cups. If you have very little time between classes, you can elect to get a pre-made to-go meal instead of going into the dining hall. Regarding the a la carte dining hall, stations include: grill, Mexican cuisine, pizza, sandwiches, and sushi. As of this fall, Dunkin' Donuts has arrived on-campus!

Providence College, located in Providence, Rhode Island is a relatively small campus with around 5,000 undergrad. What makes it special going to a school this size, is that you will always see a familiar face when you are walking on campus. Providence has so much to offer and has so many clubs and activities for students to get involved with! PC is also located only a few minutes from downtown Providence and Federal Hill, which are main attractions for this small state! Nightlife at PC is also fun, and there are plenty of bars to head too in the city and there is even a bar on campus!

My overall experience is definitely unique. I was on the women's basketball team for my freshman and sophomore years and now just a student. Although being on the team my favorite experiences always involved my friends off the team. The school is unique because of its small and neat campus, it is also very sports oriented. From experience the men's basketball team and the men's hockey team are both overrated but that doesn't stop our school from having spirit!
