Presbyterian College is a great place for any type of student. From athletes looking for competitive NCAA Division I teams, academias looking for top-notch classes with engaged professors, social butterflies looking for campus involvement and nightlife, they have something for everyone! Although Presbyterian is small, it has a large school social and athletic life, while still maintaining small class sizes so that you get the most out of every experience. The only thing I would like to see change is the food, it does leave a little to be desired on days!

Presbyterian College can be a great place, depending on your family's yearly income and your major. It is really a place suited for students that come from wealthy families (they expect students to be able to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket to go there). The financial aid department really doesn't care about the students, and will simply dismiss you unless you go to someone above them. Also, if your major isn't one of the more popular ones you may have trouble getting the classes you need and the support you need to graduate. I am an education major and we only have one full professor and a visiting professor in our entire department. Classes are only offered at very specific times and if you don't get in one or have a time conflict it can easily delay your graduation.
Love my professors and can't wait to say that I will be an alumni in 2 years! The campus is beautiful. The best part is that people are always walking their dogs on campus.
