5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are small, professors get to know their students on a personal level and really look out for them, all faculty and staff are aware and sensitive to the needs of students, courses really challenge students, and the liberal arts requirements shape extremely well-rounded individuals. Providence College prepares students for the workforce and future social encounters, provides an education comprised of both hard and soft skills, and maintains an environment of respect between students and faculty and staff that allows everyone to grow and flourish.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree from Providence College is a ticket to the world. Not only are you well prepared for the future, but you have the connections to go anywhere you want to go. Companies are eager to hire Providence College students and are always on campus advertising employment opportunities, and PC alumni are especially eager to help out fellow Friars. The alumni association is one of the strongest in the country, and provides security that you will find a job after graduation.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only time I ever feel unsafe while at school is when walking off campus in the surrounding neighborhood. Security is quick to respond whenever they are called for a dispute, and I have never had anything stolen while on campus, nor have any of my friends (to my knowledge). Sexual assault is not talked about frequently, but there have been a few cases that I have heard about during my time at PC. Various offices, including residence life, student affairs, and campus ministry work hard to prevent sexual assault as well as provide support services for victims of sexual assault.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The residence halls are structurally great! For those on lower campus, getting to class or to buildings around campus can be daunting and very time consuming. Social atmosphere and residential community is great in underclassmen dorms, but is much more difficult to achieve in suites and apartment-style resident halls.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sporting events really unite the student body! It's a shame that many of our sports are overshadowed by the popularity of the men's hockey and basketball teams, but there is great support for all of our student athletes. Most of the student population played sports in high school, and it shows with the quality of our athletic facilities, attendance at the gym, and participation in intramural and club sports.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Providence College has opened my mind to so many new ideas, challenged me not only academically, but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The people I have surrounded myself with bring out the best in me, inspire me to reach higher, give me opportunities to grow, force me to recognize what I am capable of, and have led me to find who I really am.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses themselves are interesting, and most of the professors are also engaging. I had a few that were somewhat uninspiring, but those are kind of exceptions. The Development of Western Civilization program, though most people (and honestly including me on occasion) complain about it, is really an interesting and unique program that, when taken seriously by the students, can do so much to help broaden one's understanding of the world we live in today.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The network of alumni who help students is known throughout campus as being very available and useful to students looking for jobs after graduation. I've never been to the career center, so I can't really talk about any personal experiences with it, but I hear good things.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. And the Safety and Security officers are pretty pleasant when they talk to you. Most of the campus crime that happens, when it does, is usually around the off-campus housing neighborhoods, and a lot of it either has to do with alcohol, or the people in the neighborhoods.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's not too shabby.The buildings are well-kept, and the friendships you make with the people on your floor are lasting. It's a bit costly to live in non-traditional housing like suites or apartments, but definitely still worth it. As for the housing process, it's nerve-wracking just like at any college because you don't know if you'll be approved for your first choice so you have to have back up plans, but all in all, pretty decent.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students are really involved in intramural sports and the friendly competitive spirit is also really awesome for morale. Student fan support at the basketball and ice hockey games is incredible.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think my favorite part about Providence College is the growth that I have experienced there. The people I met during my first year are those whom I know will be in my life for a very long time. They are people who have pushed me and inspired me to strive to tap into and reach my full potential, something that didn't really happen in high school and at home. As cheesy and pamphlet-y as it sounds, there really is a sense of community you feel with the other students. Age differences don't matter there. Some of my best friends that I made this past year were seniors, and they taught me so much in just one year. There's just something about PC that makes you feel as though you really are a part of a family. I would one thousand percent choose this school again if I could do it all over.

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.
