As the only U.S. college or university administered by the Dominican Friars, PC is both unique and exceptional. Its dynamic core curriculum anchors an experience balancing academic rigor, shared values, and uncommon camaraderie. That experience yields well-rounded graduates confidently ready to follow generations of PC alumni in leading lives of meaning and purpose. With approximately 4,000 traditional undergraduates, PC is just minutes from downtown Providence, of of the country's most dynamic cities. Its close-knit community fosters a culture of participation and service where 95% of students live on the scenic campus or within a short walk. Consistently ranked among the top five in its U.S. News & World Report peer group, Providence College is noted for first-year retention and graduation rates that rank among the highest in the country, along with a low student-to-faculty ration. With pride in its heritage, PC looks forward with high aspirations. Its strategic plan defines a second century where the college's Catholic and Dominican mission supports enhanced academic excellence, greater community diversity, programming that prepares graduates for professional and personal success, and operational practices that will assure sustained distinction. This bold plan, an aggressive approach to continued facilities upgrades, and an undeniable community spirit all point to one certainty: Providence College's brightest days are just ahead.
