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!!!
Tips for prospective students
You should visit PC, take a tour and talk to students while here. That is what really helped me to choose PC over other choices I had.
Academic Rigor
highly challenging coursework...but that's one reason why I came here. It's true that our professors are AMAZING!!!!
Dorm Life
great fun...lots of friendly people. I've made the best friends here I have ever had!
Food and Dining
good food here!
What to do for fun
there are tons of clubs and organizations to be a part of on campus...but since we are in a small southern town there's not much to do off campus unless you drive to Greenville or Columbia (which aren't far).
Bang for the buck
they give great scholarships to those who have a history of community service and high grades in school AND to those who have a STRONG interest in music!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
listening to scottish bagpipes as we have a strong scottish heritage here
Great for these types of students
if you are looking for challenging academics and a great friendly, family feel on campus come to PC - you will love it here!

Great for these types of students
This school is great for the person who loves to get involved. The possibilities are endless and you can be involved in many clubs, organizations, and extra-curricular activities while still keeping up with school work!

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.
Tips for prospective students
ASK for help when needed because there are professors and other students willing to help you out, when in need.
DO get involved because there is so much to get into, and you will definitely find your niche at PC.
Academic Rigor
The work at PC challenges your mind, and forces you to critically think.
Dorm Life
The dorms are decent but not the best dorms you might come across, however they are livable and once you are in them you add your only little touches to them, it's just like home!
Food and Dining
The dining places on campus are great. We have two Springs and GDH(Greenville Dining Hall). Springs is more fast and on-the-go food and GDH is where you go to see down for a while to chat and eat. The taste of these foods are good and also safe to eat.
What to do for fun
On campus we have plenty of gatherings that many of the groups on campus set up, so there is almost always something to do on campus. We also have certain groups on campus who gather people to play a big game of ultimate frisbee or volleyball.
Bang for the buck
We have a nice gym on campus.
Great for these types of students
It is great if you like a small community type feel or if you are used to this.
Clubs and Activities
There are a ton of clubs and activities on campus, and they keep coming too.
Greek Life
We do have greek life on our campus. However, we currently do not have any historically black sororities or fraternities on campus.
Campus Safety
You can leave your door unlocked and feel completely safe on our campus, and also campus police rides around all day to make sure that this safe feeling is maintained.

PC is a great small, private liberal arts college. It has a beautiful campus with many sports and organizations to become involved in. The academics are challenging to students to help give them a strong education.
Tips for prospective students
For prospective students, you should get involved and make yourself well known to the PC community. PC is great and friendly. You will love it here.
Academic Rigor
PC has a challenging academic system, but its not impossible. The professors are all great and willing to help.
Dorm Life
Dorm life could be a little better, but its easy to get cozy and have a room away from home.
Food and Dining
There is a dinning hall and a sub/grill/smoothie place too. The food is good but can get old quick. There are places to eat around campus too.
What to do for fun
For fun you should get involved in organizations. PC is a busy community that has a lot of things to offer.

Presbyterian College (PC) is a home, a family, and a future. Don't let the small town deceive you, PC is your typical college experience but with so much more. I absolutely love PC.
Tips for prospective students
Focus on service in your application. While PC is rigorous, our motto is While we live, we serve. Service will stand out as a potential applicant.
Academic Rigor
While the professors are always there for you and will help you succeed, they expect a lot from you and hold you to it. That's why PC degrees are so respected.
Dorm Life
99% of students live on campus. The dorms need renovation, but it is super easy to hang out with your friends.
Food and Dining
The food is good, but lacks variation for vegan, vegetarians, and gluten free options.
What to do for fun
If you aren't big on frat parties, you can hang out in your friends' dorm rooms or go to one of the nearby cities. Since PC is so small, you get creative with your fun options. From playing manhunt (a more extreme version of hide and seek) to outdoor swing dancing, PC students always find things to do.
Bang for the buck
I find PC worth every penny. I just got back from studying abroad in Spain and I compared PC with the other students' universities. I concluded that I have it great at PC.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The attics and basements in certain buildings can come as a shock.
Great for these types of students
There's something for everyone really.
Clubs and Activities
Great options! Actually a common problem at PC is to become over-involved.
Greek Life
6 different fraternities and 3 sororities as well as other Greek honors societies. Lots of options, and lots of fun.
Campus Safety
PC is extraordinarily safe. I never feel scared walking around at night. One thing that holds us accountable is the honor code.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Fill out the FAFSA as soon as you can! The financial aid office is really great about getting back to you and helping in any way necessary. Also, take tours. That was one of my favorite parts of the decision process.
Academic Rigor
PC classes are hard! The transition from high school to college tends to be difficult for enough people and if they don't take the course work seriously, then it can end up being too much to bear.
Dorm Life
Living in the dorms is one of the best experiences of college, and PC has nice on-campus housing. Every building has it's own free washers and dryers for laundry and the RA's are all usually fun friendly people.
Food and Dining
Greenville Dining Hall serves a wide variety of foods as well as the everyday staples. And they're very accommodating for those with allergies and such. Springs is a popular location for lunch most days of the week because it's conveniently located near the center of campus and there's access to on-the-go food.
What to do for fun
There's probably the same things to do for fun at PC as there are at every other school: athletic events, student-led events, and just hanging out with friends. But at PC we know how to have a good time. Homework turns into a study party in the library, sunbathing is a water balloon fight on the front lawn next to the dodge ball tournaments
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
It's tradition that before seniors graduate they should climb to the roof of Neville Hall, which is the center of campus, and enjoy a beverage of choice while reminiscing on their wonderful 4 years at Presbyterian College.
Greek Life
PC has 3 sororities and 6 fraternities on campus that contribute to bettering the community: Sigma Sigma Sigma, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Alpha Delta Pi, Sigma Nu, Pi Kappa Alpha. As a whole, greek life is the largest student-led organization on campus.

Am learning a lot
Professors are experts in and love their subjects. Unstumpable it seems. Entertain and encourage out of the box questions, and do all that they can to take care of and prepare you.
Am enjoying being here
Awesome campus. Big grassy lawns, Big trees, Big pillars. All of the essentials are provided too. I like the food, some complain, but some always do. Good fitness center, and many other services. Oh, and fun weekends too with lots of pretty people.
Bang for the buck
Very generous about scholarships.
Tips for prospective students
apply and then come.
Great for these types of students
Great for students who like sciences, learning, a friendly clean enviroment, community, and fun.

Academic Rigor
PC is the right choice for you if you care about actually learning as opposed to just passing with a degree. The workload can be heavy, but the professors are interesting, fun, and caring. If you ever have a problem with an assignment, you can go to your professors for help, and they will take the time to make sure you do well.
Bang for the buck
There are many scholarships available.
Tips for prospective students
Do extracurricular activities and take any opportunities for leadership so that you can get scholarships, and turn in you FAFSA on time!
Great for these types of students
PC is definitely the place for you if you care about honesty, community, and academics. Cheating is absolutely not tolerated. There is a strict Honor Code which you must sign at orientation; it's not hard to follow if you are honest.
