From the Institution

Since 1917, PC has taken pride in being a Catholic and Dominican institution of higher education - one for those who seek truth, celebrate the relationship between faith and reason, and pursue these values in a loving, diverse, and inclusive community. Inspired by our unquenchable curiosity, we examine ideas and challenge assumptions, forging intellectual agility as we seek answers to difficult questions. All classes are professor-taught, and a 12:1 student-faculty ratio means that professors don't just know students' names, but their interests and aspirations as well. Beyond the classroom, PC students are never bored with 120+ student clubs and organizations, the nation's top intramural sports program (as ranked by The Princeton Review), and exciting NCAA Division I athletics. Campus is a short drive (or free bus ride with a student ID) from the heart of Providence, R.I. - one of the Northeast's most vibrant cities. Internships, study abroad, service learning, career exploration - PC offers seemingly endless pathways, opportunities, and immersive experiences that are as fulfilling as they are challenging. Whatever you seek, you'll find it at Providence College.
