Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars
Kaitlyn Dalrymple - 3/14/2017
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017
"Providence College is very much focused on business related majors. Unfortunately, the college tends to drive its energies are the majors of their choosing but still the college as a whole provides quality education. The political science department has a wide range of professors giving the students the opportunity to experience lectures from different backgrounds. I was able to build relationships with many professors because of the diverse faculty. On the other hand the student body is not diverse. It is very easy to identify a PC student by their attitude and dress. Many of the students are from the same area and tend to think the same way."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015
"The community of Providence College is extremely close-knit, which was beneficial to me for academic success. The professors are interested in each and every student and are easily accessible for extra help. I felt more than prepared to enter the real world after taking rigorous classes at PC. I am extremely thankful for the education I received and the opportunities that were presented to me as a student at PC."

"I loved PC for many reasons. My classes were small, my professors were helpful and the campus was beautiful. Would recommend to anyone who wants to attend a smaller school for their undergraduate studies. Unfortunately, it is expensive to attend and therefore I would suggest prospective students to take this into consideration. I owe a lot of money in student loans as a result of attending PC."

"Extremely homogeneous student population, in race, economic background, and from single sex private schools. Academia was rigorous and offered excellent electives. College administration is stuck in the stone age/catholic mind set in terms of sexual assault and homosexuality. If you look hard enough you can find a small subset of students interested in social betterment."

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2008
"My college did not provide me with the career advice I needed in order to move into the field of my choice or gain additional education in it. I liked my professors, I enjoyed the environment, but I feel that my graduate degree from PC did not help my reach my professional goals in any way."

"Providence College is an 5 school. It is rooted in the Dominican tradition and instills a sense of intellectual rigor and curiosity."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 1995
"I moved off campus after six months because I was tired of the constant drinking atmosphere. I was only one of two latinas in a class of 1000. Diversity was definitely lacking. Dr. S. in the psychology deportment was a wonderful mentor. The campus is also beautiful. It's the best college in Rhode Island for a quality education while still being somewhat conservative."
