  • Jul-21-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    While I was there I heard that the sports events are always really fun. The school has loads of fun events throughout the year as well.

    There are a lot of different clubs at Providence. Intramural sports are a big part of campus life. The city of Providence is only a 5 minute bus ride away and there students can go to the Providence Place mall, restaurants, Thayer Street, and other entertainments the city has to offer.

    The college is located in a city surrounded by other schools and there are lots of things to do for fun. The school offers free rides to the mall and Thayer street to all students.

    Always something to do on campus. You'll never be bored. Downtown is only 10 minutes away and there are awesome restaurants. Thayer St is a great place for college students. Tons of stores and places to visit.

    This is a very subjective question, and I will in the best way to appeal to all my readers. Providence is a richly diverse city full of things to do, from visiting Providence Place Mall to eating Italian food on historic Federal Hill to catching the Brown University scene on College Hill and Thayer St. The college puts on great programming that ranges from laser tag to movie nights to theme nights at the on-campus bar to trivia nights. There are a number of clubs and organizations that put on great events influenced by their area of interest. If one is looking to have fun off-campus (but not too far) look no farther than the off-campus apartments nearby. There are many options for dancing, meeting people, and various other activities at house parties. The surrounding neighborhood has all the services expected, and we are quite close to Amtrak and Walmart. PC students get free use of RIPTA buses, the principal public transportation in Rhode Island.

    The bus stop is right outside the the entrance to the school and all PC students ride for free. The Providence Place Mall is about a ten minute bus ride from campus. There is a shuttle to Thayer St, where there are a lot of shops and restaurants. It's also fun to walk around the Brown University campus with a PC sweatshirt on and watch all the students give you strange looks. Furthermore, there are dozens of clubs on campus which are always holding events throughout the week. Finally, PC is well known for athletics. They are a Division 1 school, so all the sports are very competitive. The only sport students have to pay to attend is men's basketball, which is played at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. If you're not a Division 1 athlete (like most of the students), there are tons of intramurals (from inner-tube water polo to softball).

    Providence is just a quick RIPTA (bus) ride away and you can ride the RIPTA for free with your PC ID. Head into downtown Providence and go shopping, to the movies, or try out a new restaurant. Thayer Street is also a popular hang out spot for not only PC students but Brown Students as well. Lots of bars can also be found in the surrounding community.

    The Providence Place mall is a short bus ride away and the bus will pick you up right from campus and PC students ride the bus for free! There are a number of nightclubs in the area and there are lots of parties in the houses surrounding campus on the weekends. Tons of campus events and a spring concert every year.
