3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety and security on our campus is overrated. Although the claim to secure our campus there has been many events where they racially profile students and teachers.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall my experience has been very good. The courses and professors I've had have all been very good and interesting. Although the DWC was always hard to understand, the professors were open to office hours and meeting outside of class to help with the course.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for undergraduates and graduates alike because of the alumni connections and also the job/internships available at PC

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms, suites, and apartments are all very up to date and are clean. Many people are happy with their living situation.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: As said previously, our teams are very apparent at our school especially since the campus is small and family oriented. The teams are all average and the fan support goes above and beyond. We definitely have school spirit wherever we go you know who we are.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty good. The only thing that stinks about it is the lottery system. Housing selection can be a hassle

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a great athletic program and facilities to make participation possible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors I've had have been good. The dorms are really not that terrible at all, and the party scene is great. There's always something going on on campus. The only bad thing about the school is the housing process. It's on a lottery basis and is done completely randomly, which can be frustrating at times.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security on campus is of the best quality. People tend to walk in groups on campus, so it's easy to stick with friends. Everyone encourages safety, especially students. I know that even if I leave campus, if I travel with fellow Friars, we all look out for each other.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are very friendly and approachable. The work provides an adequate, manageable challenge. I've found a variety of courses that suit my fancy, and the program set up for my major allows me to learn as much as possible both in and outside of my major.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The alumni network makes it easy for many students to find jobs within their major after graduation. However, I have yet to meet a student within my particular major who found a job within their major after graduation. The alumni I have met with my major so far either found a job later, or work only part time at a job within the major. The seniors with my major so far have told me they were unable to find jobs within their major or have only temporary plans concerning employment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are small, but that's to be expected for a dorm. The rooms are efficient and functional. The bathrooms are cleaned on a regular basis. Most of the housing is in the middle of campus and a quick 2-10 minute walk to any building on campus, including the dining halls. It tends to be a pain to find roommates and get the housing you want though.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone gets excited about the basketball and hockey games. People cheer at the games, and those who aren't there in person usually watch on television or keep updated on scores and wins. However, it can seem a little obsessive sometimes when everything on campus revolves around the sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've learned more than I ever expected and I have opportunities that have not been previously available. Not to mention I have awesome friends who I suspect to keep in touch with even after graduation.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is a huge part of the PC community

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My civ professors are narcissistic and arrogant

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very helpful department and very concerned with it

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social aspect is great and makes it very comfy

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life seems to have many pros and cons

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are a great part of the experience

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: PC is a great experience and very vigorous!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Transport is common, sexual assault and crimes are not rare but not common, just be careful in general. But pretty safe

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Science classes and major's classes are the hardest, I personally found civ easy and enjoyable but oly because I read every article, book , pamphlet they gave and took notes and was able to remeber nearly all of it. Have fun and study, especially for civ!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Looking back on their time at PC leaves students glowing with fond memories. Most appreciate the stimulating academics and whirlwind social scene that PC offers. While the occasional person complains that it is too much of the same thing, a copious number of students say that they couldn’t imagine being anywhere else, and if they had to do it all over again, they would absolutely make the same choice to come to PC. The overwhelming majority look on their time spent at PC as a phenomenal learning experience that has helped them develop into the intellectually, emotionally, and socially well-rounded beings that they are today.

The brilliance of the education at PC is that it extends itself outside of the classroom. A student's experience at PC can be anything that they want to make it. If you want to focus on academics, you can, and you will find a group of people who feel exactly the same way you do. If you want an education in socializing or just want your college years to be the wild and crazy ones you’ve heard they can be, PC has that, too. Most students come to PC ready to work and ready to have fun—as long as you are open-minded, PC will give you everything you desire.
