PC offers 52 major fields of study and was the first college in the nation to offer a bachelor's degree in Public and Community Services Studies.

What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
PC is strong not only in sports, but also academics. There is a lot of effort put into ensuring that the campus is safe as well as beautiful. There's a very strong sense of community and belonging throughout the school.

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.
