While the school could use a little diversity, the faculty are hardly religious fanatics. No one is going to tell you're going to hell, lol. You can also some amazingly open minded bright people here as well.

To anybody who bothers to read the above garbage, be careful. The poster below is clearly ignorant. He fails to respect other opinions. Note: I am not that one who he quoted, I am merely trying to prove Providence is a dump. The critics of Providence College are always in the wrong for some reason. Mostly, all of Providence's students that blindly follow the institution think that these "whiners" are the problem.
Providence IS the problem. Go to this place if you like to get hammered, and kill your braincells easily. Some students are quite racist. Education is pretty good though.
In all fairness, religion is NOT forced down somebody's throat. If you don't care about religion, or are not Christian, think about coming here, though.
Now, if you want to see a Basketball team assault the student body, a million dollar basketball coach FAIL, and a greenhouse attached to a brick building, go here, oh, and if you want to die of alcohol poisoning, do something stupid on a weekend night, or party all day, every day, please come to lovely Providence.
If you are a SERIOUS student, explore other options. Think of Providence as a major safety school to more prestigious institutions!The real whiners are the ones that bash others because they don't like the college. Quite sad, really. I was encouraged to transfer by a professor, there's a good sign of Providence.

For the rest, this school is awful. I had read similar statements constantly while researching PC, but, in my naivet?, thought the comments had to be exaggerated; even if everyone drinks or is a religious-nut, I can still befriend partiers and hang on their off-time. Unfortunately, people party every night. Once the sun goes down, you'll only see them when their puking in the bathroom.
Still, there are people that don't drink. I did make some friends that I remained close with (much more at first, but grew apart over the year due to excessive drinking). But, the thing is that people at PC are not accepting of others with opposing views. If you're not remotely catholic, religious fanatics may tell you you're going to go to hell and/or slide bible excerpts under your dorm room door regularly. Alcoholics will say 'it's ok' that you don't drink, but their eyes reveal the lie.
Racism is remarkably the standard; PC is so sheltered in their little corner of existence, that it feels like being warped back in time to a period where ignorance and bigotry is not only acceptable, but taught (yes, even teachers are openly racist).
Another thing is that even though PC carries a high price tag, it's a wonder where all the money goes. The inedible grime, laden with laxatives, they call 'food' is absolutely revolting; they throw fines at you like holy water; events get cancelled regularly because there aren't enough participants to fork the dough; and upkeep is practically nonexistent, particularly on the weekends.
Oh and did I mention that the girls here often androgynous? No? Well, often times, when I look at them, I think I'm looking at one of the guys from Dazed and Confused. Yet oddly, most 'girls' here strive to maintain the archetypal tanned blonde image. Expect orange skin with broad shoulders, topped off with the ever-so-redundant bleached blonde hair. Maybe that's your type.If you've read all this and still plan on enrolling in PC, I only ask that, for the sake of your sanity, make sure you don't forget to bring these items: boxes of microwavable food, industrial-grade ear plugs, and a holy cross (even if you're not religious - it's just to keep the vampires away).
