    It's a little pricey, so don't come here if you're coming to hunt, drink, and screw off. Seriously. Because even though you'll have fun, I guarantee you won't come back (I knew one kid who partied all first semester and ended with a 0.39 -- yes that's a zero in front -- and couldn't afford to go to any more college, ever!). Make sure you know what you're getting into, financially speaking. Work your hardest, save money, and apply for scholarships and grant aid whenever you can!

    I'm an outdoorsy girl... I love nature and the life it brings out in anyone that chooses to enjoy it. Walking out of my dorm in my chef whites at 6am and seeing the sun rise behind a mountain over the lake was the most beautiful thing I could ever ask for. Not many students get to see what I see at PSC. It's a beautiful campus inside and out. It's my home.
