PC is a great school.Quite BrightFinance
PC is a great school. I as a black male from the city did not fit the mold of your typical PC student and although there were moments I felt alienated, my overall experience was good. Students at PC are serious about academics and like to party very often. There are different social groups for everyone, and you will find a group that suits you. There is always a lot going on. Professors are helpful and in my experience they provide challenging work. I would definitely recommend PC if you are accepted.

Question
I really enjoy the faculty here.Super BrilliantUndecided
I really enjoy the faculty here. That, perhaps, has been the only thing that has kept me here. I like larger universities where I can have a diverse population of students and see new faces everyday. I like that sense of anonymity. However, given the size of PC you get sick of the same people. The college acquires a great deal of wealthy, average at best, applicants. I came here for my scholarship. I often question that daily whether I made the right choice or not because I just don't fit in here. I imagined going to a school where you wouldn't be judged, that religion wasn't so predominate on campus, and where I could create a new identity apart from the cliquey nature of high school and unfortunately PC resembles that.
