Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

The best decision I've ever made; as long as you take advantage of everything PC has to offer, I promise you won't regret it. There's something about the environment that just encourages people to strive towards excellence. I wouldn't be who I am today without PC.

If you want a college that feels like a family, where professors know your name and really care about you, a college that has a GREAT study abroad program, PC is for you. I love it here and I'm from the big city of Atlanta. Yes, Clinton is a small town, but there is so much to do on campus you really don't notice. Plus, you can get to the big city easily if you want. This is truly what a college should be!!!
Anna from Atlanta, Ga
This school is really homey and small, which gives it a great community feel to it. You can come to your professors at any time for them to help you. Also, there is a bunch to get into at the college, so there is no reason not to get involved and be a part of the community at PC.
