Providence College Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


The stereotype at our school is that we are all white, rich kids. This stereotype is not accurate because I myself am not wealthy and I wasn't born in this country. Our school also works very hard to accept diversity at our school and has made major efforts to increase the diversity at this school to get rid of the stereotype.


Rich, white, catholic, preppy. This is somewhat true, but we have significant diversity of personality; every person I meet is unique and interesting.


The Providence College stereotype is that everyone is preppy and rich, since tuition is extremely expensive. However, this stereotype is not quite accurate. When people think "rich" and "preppy," they associate these terms with people with snobby and rude personalities. Students at PC are some of the nicest and friendliest people around.
