Deep Springs is hard core and not forQuite BrightOther
Deep Springs is hard core and not for the feint of heart. Students spend 20-30 hours a week maintaining a cattle ranch and alfalfa farm in the school's labor program. Tuition (valued at $50,000 per year) is free-- all students (all 26) are on a two-year full scholarship. After two years most students transfer to Harvard, Cornell, U. of Chicago, Yale, Berkeley, Brown, or Oxford.

Students read 1000-2000 pages a week in a heavily classics and text-based curriculum. Reading all of Das Kapital, Moby Dick, and The Grapes of Wrath, would be a representative week of reading. Most assignments are large research papers or short "response papers." Most students write roughly 20 pages a week.

This is the ideal school for the humanist, the writer, the communitarian, the idealist, and the worker. It is not for the materialist, the slacker, or the weak.

Deep Springs is highly competitive, highly intellectual, and holistically rigorous. It is bold and beautiful and among the best schools in the country.

Coming from a student who went to UNLVBrightAccounting
Coming from a student who went to UNLV and hated it because of its hate for God. I Love PCC. Sure it may have its rules, But so does every other aspect of human life. God is the main reason i go to PCC, Not because mommy and daddy told me to. I wanted an enviroment were God was first. I was sick and tired doing things i thought would make me happy. If going to college is one big party then go to UNLV and dont go to PCC. If you want to serve God with you life Go to PCC. People depend too much on an accredited degree. If God wants you to have a certian job you will get it. I thank God for PCC and i would encourage anyone who wants to do whats right in Gods eyes to go there. Take it form someone who has played the game of the world and lost. But ithe God is now happier than ever.College student from Las Vegas Nevada.
