PNC implemented Pride Week the first week of classes. Students are greeted by current athletes and coaches explaining what their program has to offer if you are interested. The students, athletes and non, form teams, which compete and interact in a variety of events throughout the week. Even though we are competing with other teams, there is an over-whelming aura of comradery within the student body as a whole. We support each other and cheer one another on, thus forming the bond we all share...PURDUE BOILERMAKERS!!!!!
During this week, we are also given a tour of the athletic department and facilities. This building and all that it offers is available to all students free of charge. Some of the many amenities offered are: a full-size swimming pool, state-of-the-art workout room, numerous basketball, tennis, and racquetball courts.
PNC offers nearly every sport that a regular on-campus college has. The athletes and coaching staff are very inviting to anyone interested in being a part of the program. The students enjoy attending the competitions, especially those held at home. The vibe around campus is much like that of your local high school during homecoming week. For me it provides a familiar, at-home feel, which is quite comforting at times when life seems to be moving at an accelerated speed toward my future, adult life.
