Development of Western Civilization, or Civ as we lovingly call it, is the school's crafty way of giving you a rounded education along with their other mandatory classes. While some consider Civ a huge hurdle due to it's amount of work and difficulty, I really do believe it shapes you as a student, and is vital information that makes an educated intellectual. Besides Civ, classes are exciting and there are many to choose from. However, some professors have accents that are hard to understand, and some classes perhaps give too much work.

    This college is the premiere place to learn how to think critically and write proficiently. PC creates opportunities for their students through a well-connected Alumni network that is deeply concerned for the welfare of current students and recent graduates. It is a medium size college with a family-like atmosphere that from my experience exists nowhere else.
