I love it
It’s a wonderful environment to learn and experience life while learning new things about yourself and how you deal with things.
Presbyterian College is a great college to attend to. It is known for its prestigious academics. Having a degree from Presbyterian College will have you set up for success in your future. While that may sound great, don't expect it to be easy. Presbyterian college may not be in an environment such as Miami University or Arizona State but you can find ways to have fun at our school. Clinton is a small country-like area, and while it is small you benefits of that. Classrooms rarely ever exceed 30 people in the classes because of the hands on learning you get with the professors at our school. If you plan to be successful in your future then Presbyterian College is the place to go!
I am extremely grateful for my time there and the experiences I had. It provided me a great foundation for my future career due to great professors and availability to participate in hands-on experience. I am glad that I chose to play a sport at PC because it has molded me to a well-rounded individual.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Presbyterian College is 59%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
From my college experience, I've gotten confidence and motivation. The community here at school has taught me how to be who I am and how to love that person no matter what. I finally have a plan for my life and am excited to see it unfold. The dedication and patience shown to me at this school have changed who I am and who I want to be, and therefore, have changed my life.
I now know how I can lead my life to be a better person and to help others, and that is the best thing I could have asked for in college.
Parties at fraternity houses, basketball camps for high school teams, its silly mascot (the Blue Hose), being a private, liberal-arts school, what's known as "The PC Bubble," which describes the seclusion from the outside world, both because the school is in the middle of nowhere, and because the students can be closed-minded and naive when it comes to the bigger picture. In a lot of ways, PC is similar to high school, due to its small size and rural location that keep everyone very close together.
Presbyterian college is academically and socially challenging.
I would say that the worst thing is that it is located in such a small town.
I wish I had known how difficult the classes were in some of the majors and how hard I would have to work to do well.
Students at my school all care about their grades.
I liked the small campus and small town feel. I liked the close knitness of the community and the dedication to service this as well as the strong Honor Code embeded in the school.
My favorite thing about Presbyterian College is the professors. The professors here strive to get to know you and really have your best interest in mind. They take the time to learn your name, what learning techniques work best for each student, and try to incoorporate all those techniques into lecture. If you aren't doing well in a class the professor will pull you aside or e-mail you and ask how they can help you do better. It's a really nice feeling knowing your professors care so much about your success.
PC is a tough school. If you are the kind of student who is content with doing little to no work and just sliding by, don't come to PC. The professors are always happy to help you do better, but only if you care enough to want to do better. If you do little to no work here, you will fail. Lazy students and students who do not really care about their education should not come to PC.
The meal plan is too expensive for the quality (you might as well eat at one of the local restaurants for every meal and not optional for students living on campus. The meal plan is also very inconvenient for students with special food needs; it should be optional.
The type of person who should attend this school would be someone with morals and a high sense of self respect. Someone who likes to have fun and socialize, but knows when to buckle down and work hard. Someone with a sense of direction in life and a strong will to achieve. Most students are very serious about school and make focusing on school work their top priority, followed closely by strong involvement in extra-curricular activities. Everybody is very friendly and accepting of one another, allowing strong expression of individuality without concern for what others may think.
I tell them how hard it actually is and how post graduate schools see it as a very good school.
