Great small town community. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Most faculty and staff are devoted to their work and are essential in empowering the Promise of PC initiative for students and potential students. It is a small, yet beautiful campus. I hate that they don't offer my major; otherwise, I would consider continuing my education there! The only downside is the price of tuition and fees. I recommend the campus life and feel of the college. The academics here seem to be highly respected and prestigious, and the student life departments appear to be very active in reaching out to students in and outside of the classroom.

For my first year at Presbyterian College, at first it was a nice college, it was my top choice, and I was excited to attend. This college has a very good academic program, as long as you pick the right classes/professors according to you learning styles. But, if we're talking about the campus environment my first year was toxic. At first, it was a loving campus, but then everything starting falling apart. First, there was a male student that starting going around following females around at night and sexually assaulting some of them. Then, there was a Racist Fraternity that has now luckily been shut down. Then later on that year, there were bomb threats issued toward the academic buildings by students. These events made it very uncomfortable for me at Presbyterian College. One thing that I did like about PC was the friendships that I made.
I am currently a student at Presbyterian College. It's a very small school with about 65% of the student body being athletes. The campus is beautiful and there is a lot of community and alumni support. The staff and professors are dedicated to their students' success on and off the campus.
I am still very new to the campus, but so far my experience has been awesome. There are graduate programs for those looking to extend their education into a master's program.
Athletics are exciting at Presbyterian. Football, baseball, soccer,gynmastics, golf, and basketball or some of the many sports we have here at Presby. The student-athletes are just that, students AND athletes. Coaches want to ensure their athletes' success in the classroom and the field, court or mats. Study hall is required for freshman and highly recommended after that.
This is going to be and has been an exciting time in my life and looking forward to the rest of my time here on campus.
