Party Scene: There's always something to do

4 College Freshman

Academics: Great academics! Students are very studious

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Rarely see hard drugs on campus

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school but not for me. Too preppy and lots of cliques

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love going to games, the gym and club sports are awesome.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's okay. I really like the academic. Civ is okay but not the best, very boring. The dorms are very nice, the food not so much. Everyone here is nice but they all seem fake. I thought I would fit in but I don't.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There's an awareness of the drugs but not a huge amount of students who do them due to the lack of peer pressure.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We get informed with any crimes that happen around campus, but not always.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some are the best and some are the worst professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Getting a degree from this school is very important and impressive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing process is a nightmare, Aquinas has no space.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are very important at my school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has a friendly campus and helpful staff.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Honestly I am not a fan of the security team and the health center. The only place I have felt safe and valued is at the Personal Counseling Center. I felt belittled and ashamed of being sick at the health center, and I felt embarrassed FOR and exploited by our safety and security team when asked about sexual assault because it is beyond clear that they only care about covering it up and keeping PC's image intact.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like all of my professors. yes, Civ sucks, but my civ professors have been fine. I think everyone is really fair and honest and most professors will give you the grade you deserve. Courses are so diverse, but you're kind of locked in by the extensive core requirements because you have to take a certain number of civ courses, theology, philosophy and so on.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a huge friar family, and we have a winter shadow program which shows everyone exactly what kind of job you can get after graduation. I always get complimented when I say that I am a PC student because the honors program is super prestigious.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never had complaints about my dorm rooms. My freshman dorm was spacious and accessible, my sophomore dorm is big enough and I have my own space so I am not on top of my roommates.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It brings so much school spirit and pride to the community. We may have the creepiest mascot ever but we have so much Friar Family around us that we forget to scream when Friar Dom comes our way.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Providence College is the best. There are so many people that are warm and the liberal arts honors program is fantastic at giving opportunities and helping students succeed.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I thought diversity was not going to be a big thing in Providence, but I am surprised at the amount of diversity it has. There are people from many places around the world. I have made friends from places like Africa, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and Ecuador.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The tutors offered for students are great resources to have. They help especially with CIV.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I am not so sure about the saftey of the campus. There has been many robberies in students apartments. Also, the security does not really check who enters the campus very well. almost anyone can enter most of the time.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors that I have had have shown a great importance towards their students education. They show that they care and are willing to meet with their students even when time is limited. One of my favorite professors that I had was in my Intro to Acting class. My professor's desire to teach and make a difference in the students acting abilities really shined in every class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Providence College has many resources that help students with their future by having professionals check students resumes, and fairs where companys from all over come to talk to students about future possibilitites.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: At first I was very homesick, but with the help of my roommate and friends on my floor, I have grown to love my residence hall. There are events that happen every week in the building that allows the students to socialize and meet other people on the floor. Events such as pizza night or "netflex and chill" happen. The residence activities help each student feel welcomed and more comforatble in the enviornment.

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.
