Describe the students at your school.

Students at my school all care about their grades.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I was a senior, I would have visted ALL seven of the colleges I was accepted to, not just some of them because you don't know if you like it unless go there yourself. Sometimes I wonder if I would have liked the schools I never visited. I would advise to change your voicemail if it's silly or a prank because professors WILL call you. I would tell myself to make earlier deadlines for myself when trying to get work done, especially papers and essays. Be open-minded and patient when you first start living with your new roommate. Don't put anything on Facebook.com that you wouldn't want your parents to see. STAY ACTIVE. Cafeteria food WILL catch up to you if you don't do anything! Don't stay up late for no reason. Sleep is VERY IMPORTANT in college - Many students get sick and miss classes because they're so worn down from school work and no rest. If you go to a small school, don't do anything you don't want the entire campus knowing about! Small campuses TALK. Engage in class discussions.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit a lot of colleges. Do NOT look at schools with or make decisions based on your friends or boyfriend/girlfriend; the college search needs to be completely about you. Pick the school that makes you feel most at home. Talk to students, sit in on classes, go spend a few weekends at various schools (if you're shy, push yourself!). Don't judge a school based on one tour- do your research and try to see various aspects of the school's community and campus life. Most importantly, keep an open mind. You may switch your major ten times (I thought all my life that I'd be a lawyer until I got to school- it's not even a prospect any more). You may think Greek life would be amazing and end up hating it, or vice versa. Go to the college that fits you best (and you alone) and make the most you possibly can out of it- I promise you'll love it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating aspects of my school are dorm life, food, and healthcare. Freshman dorms desparately need renovations and housing has become highly limited. Off-campus housing is not an option, and although senior housing is decent, students are limited to not-so-great dormitories. The food isn't terrific, either; the dining hall rarely has desirable food and the campus center has high prices and inconvenient hours. Because PC is in a small town, off-campus dining is limited and unhealthy (mainly fast food). Healthcare is not great either; the local hospital is not helpful or sanitary.

Academic excellence, relationship oriented

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Presbyterian College is an amazing place. Not only does it offer an excellent education, it provides a lifelong support group of alumni and classmates. There are numerous activities students can choose to participate in for entertainment, educational, and competitive purposes. There are never many worries about finding a job or pursuing higher education, because the alumni are all helpful and want the Presbyterian College students to succeed as they did. Although it is in the small town of Clinton, South Carolina, there are numerous options for traveling both near and far. I, personally, am going on a Maymester to Ireland with the History and English department this summer as well as living in Los Angeles, California for an internship in fashion. The school helped me find the internship and gave me the opportunity to go on the maymester. Presbyterian College is an excellent choice for a student who is not sure what they want to do after college because the Liberal Arts atmosphere helps students learn what they enjoy.

My school has amazing music, biology, and religios departments. It is known for its honor code and its motto, while we live we serve.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You need to make sure that you visit all of the colleges that you are interested in and make sure to sit in on some classes, talk to the professors and students and maybe even spending the night. Once you are in college make sure not to work too hard! You need to get everything that you have to done, but dont get so preoccupied that you dont have a social life.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

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.

Heather
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise students to look at many schools even if the school is not one of the student's top choices. Doing lots of research on the schools is very important and the most important sources of information about a college are the current students. To make the most of your college experience, move in with an open-mind. Be willing to listen and absorb different oppinions and cultures so that these may shape your experience and perspective. Never forget that college is where you discover new things about the world and ultimatly yourself. Try new things, even if it isn't the most appitizing thing. Don't compromise your beliefs and values for the sake of someone else. Make your years in college the best that they can be.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is small, community-oriented, and friendly, but with just the right amount of academic emphasis, social life, and opportunities to get involved.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

We' ve got 1200 students, and I feel like everyone I meet is a part of a huge family. The professors are just as close to the students as we are to ourselves. On the first day of class we receive our professor's cell phone number, and I've definitely used that to call them on a late night before an exam. The student-faculty relationship is like having multiple sets of parents. They are people who constantly ask if you're doing okay, support you in athletic events, and don't hesitate to tell their expectations of you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents and students to take their time about finding the right college. Take trips to visit, talk to as many people as you can, and weigh your pros and cons. You'll feel that "fit" when you're at the right place, and once you feel that, you'll never want to look back. Once you're there, get involved, serve your community, and make a difference. You've got four years at this place and you've got four years to leave a mark. Study hard, do your best, but never forget to have fun. Not only make your parents proud, but be proud of yourself. When at college, thousands of opportunities come your way...so don't ever forget to make the most of what you have, and most importantly, become the person you've always wanted to be.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For a rising college student to make the best of his/her college experience, I would advise him/her to look into several different colleges or universities that he/she is interested in and apply. Afterwards, he/she should visit the colleges that have accepted him/her with his/her parents. They should look into courses that the school offers and see if the curriculum is what the student may see himself/herself doing in school, as well as applying that potential degree after graduation. Affordability is also important especially if the student is mostly paying by himself/herself. The parents should look into possible scholarships and grants available and offered by the state and the school itself. If the student wants to be highly involved on campus, he/she needs to look into a school that offers an array of extracurricular activities and programs such as sports and clubs. But the most important factor for a student to make the most of the college experience, is not necessarily finding the "perfect" college, it is having the positive attitude of wanting to make the most out of his/her college experience.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing(s) about my school is its location and lack of diversity.

It is definately a community where the professors are not only respected in their fields, but they also love teaching students and are patient and challenging at the same time. Since I am an athlete i care a lot about football. the students are spiritied and come to and cheer on our teem, football i serious at PC. Greek life is great. Unlike other college gredd life at PC is not as stand offish to non Greek people so a lot of the campus hangs out at the Fraternity houses on the weekends giving PC a good social life. Awesome

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

That they should find a place where they can prepare for a career and be challenged and motivated. Also feeling at home is important too. The decision on which college to choose is a very tough one, a prospective student needs to pray, research and ask for guidance about his or her decision. also you want a place that has a lot going on and is very spirited that is important for social growth, competiveness in school programs, and school pride.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Its too small, not enough people come to the football games, and the area around PC does not provide anyting to do socially. PC is also a very rigourous school academically and it does not provide enough majors. I also don't like the inflexibility of the dinning hall hours that they are open.

Andrew
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right school for you is not about finding the school that can do the most for you. In an echo of John F. Kennedy, it is about finding the school were you can best get involved. Sitting on the side lines is an unhappy experience no matter where you find yourself, so if you want to find the right college and make the most of your experience there find the school that best accommodates you being involved socially, academically, spiritually or whatever it is you want to take part in.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The only really bad thing about PC is that is just not for everyone. If you want a big school or big city atmosphere then you will not be happy here.
