Presbyterian College

Presbyterian College, a top liberal arts college, strives for excellence in the classroom, via inquiry and dialogue, and on the playing field, via its participation in NCAA Division I sports. In addition to the Colleges excellent undergraduate offerings, PC opened a graduate School of Pharmacy in 2010 and was honored by the Chinese government in 2009 when it funded a Confucius Institute on campus. Presbyterian College is the only undergraduate liberal arts college in the United States awarded such an institute from China. Moreover, ample opportunities exist for study abroad, internships, and student research. PC has been named a Distinguished member of the National Presidents Honor Roll of Service and has a student body that regularly engages in service projects in the city of Clinton and Upstate South Carolina, thereby living out the Colleges motto, "Dum Vivimus Servimus" or "While we live, we serve." Seven Presbyterian College professors have been named South Carolina CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education) professors of the year, twice as many as any other institution in the state. Both students and faculty of Presbyterian note that high quality relationships set it apart from other institutions, as faculty engage students both in and out of the classroom. As a liberal arts college that embraces honor, academic rigor, and community relationships, PC is also a church-related liberal arts college whose philosophy of excellence in reason and excellence in faith provides students an opportunity to examine and celebrate their faith, Christian and otherwise, in the context of an enriched, caring, and global-oriented community.
