Providence College Reviews
Review Providence College
Sporting events really unite the student body! It's a shame that many of our sports are overshadowed by the popularity of the men's hockey and basketball teams, but there is great support for all of our student athletes. Most of the student population played sports in high school, and it shows with the quality of our athletic facilities, attendance at the gym, and participation in intramural and club sports.
The residence halls are structurally great! For those on lower campus, getting to class or to buildings around campus can be daunting and very time consuming. Social atmosphere and residential community is great in underclassmen dorms, but is much more difficult to achieve in suites and apartment-style resident halls.
My overall experience is definitely unique. I was on the women's basketball team for my freshman and sophomore years and now just a student. Although being on the team my favorite experiences always involved my friends off the team. The school is unique because of its small and neat campus, it is also very sports oriented. From experience the men's basketball team and the men's hockey team are both overrated but that doesn't stop our school from having spirit!
