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

My advice would be to EXPERIENCE IT: visit, visit, visit and don't narroaw your options until you are sure. All colleges are going to try to win you over with brochures and paraphenalia but these are only words and pictures. I think the best way to decided where you would benefit the most from attending is to visit. You are able to see the campus, dining areas, dorm rooms, classrooms and even interact with faculty and students. Take a tour. Go to class. And ultimately, spend a night on campus without your mom or dad. It is important for your parents to be part of the decision but you are deciding where to go and live without your parents to help you grow to your full potential. Through people you know or admissions, find a student to stay with and fully EXPERIENCE the school. Do this for each school you are interested in and in the end, you will know where you feel most comfortable and where you can thrive. Stop reading and go EXPERIENCE IT. Once you have decided and begin your college experience, do not stop there. Get involved on campus and live your college EXPERIENCE!

What's unique about your campus?

The best part of PC is the community. When you come to PC you really do become part of the PC family that includes alumni, faculty and professors and current students. This community allows you to grow socially, academically, emotionally, and spiritually as you become more and more yourself and make friends that will be with you for life.

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

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.

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

Plan financially so that you can make it through all four years as well as visit all the schools you plan on applying to grasp a feel for the campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who doesn't like big campus' but also doesn't want a small campus feel. Also a person who values honor, academics, hard work, and a quality education.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

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.

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

It's really important to experience as many aspects of the college as possible before making your decision. Find out if the school will let you sit in on classes, whether it offers overnight stays with students and campus tours, or visit a friend who already attends the school. Ask other students what they like most and what they like least about the school. Visit the surrounding areas to get a feel for the availability of weekend entertainment and other dining options. Find out whether the school has an internship program, travel opportunities, or other ways to experience the real world while you're in school. You'll never get a better chance to intern or study abroad than in college. College is a unique time in your life, where everybody around you is all working toward the same goal, where everybody is interested in learning and growing and experiencing life in similar ways. Make the most of your college experience by balencing work and play. Employers value a positive attitude and likeable personality almost as much as, and in many cases even more than, book smarts. So have fun! And enjoy the naps and long holidays while you can!

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

Pick the school that makes you feel at home. I started off playing basketball for Presbyterian College and wasn't happy with our coach, I could have transferred to any of the other schools that recruited me but I simply couldn't see myself wearing any other uniform. I loved PC that much. Now I am a full scholership women's golf team captain and I am so glad that I chose the school that made me feel so at home that I would do anything to stay there.

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

I would say that the worst thing is that it is located in such a small town.

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

Choose a college based on career preparation and the oppurtunity that the school provides, and not the popularity of the sports teams.

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

The fact that there is absolutely nothing to do off campus. Nothing!!!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell them how hard it actually is and how post graduate schools see it as a very good school.

Describe the students at your school.

I have had some of the most intelligent people I have ever known as classmates, and I have had others that amazed every time they even made it to class.

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

Visit any campuses that you or your child is considering attending, and don't count out a school simply because it seems too far away. Better to drive a little further and find the best fit than to settle. Also, remember that a school is largely what you make out of it. Even if you're not the typical "University of __________" student, most likely there are people on campus with whom you share common interests and can forge great friendships. Better to have a few truly solid relationships than to be able to say you know everyone on campus but lack any intimate connections.

What's unique about your campus?

While the faculty may not be world-renowned by any means, nearly every professor I have had has both been extrememly competent in their field of expertise and was also an adept instructor. They not only have enlightened me on countless issues, but have helped motivate me to desire to learn even more.
