PC is a good place to attend if you are grounded and know what you want from your education. That being said, if you want an academically rigorous experience (tests, tons of homework, etc.) this probably isn't the place for you. If an experiential education is something you're after it's the place to be. Often times I found that I didn't feel as if I was learning much during courses, after having time to process the experience I usually walked away with a wealth of knowledge. Social life is what you make it and PC is about as liberal as a liberal art college can get. Outdoor activities abound and the Adventure Education and Environmental Studies departments are excellent. If you attend the school without much direction you either won't last long or will spend a few extra semesters trying to get back on track. Not cheap.

Student body is a little ecocentric and slightly narrow minded in the sense "we're right , they're wrong". PC use to recruit mostly older ( early 20's-30's) students who were self motivated and had life experience, that isn't really the case now and it shows.
