"Providence College has had a wonderful impact on my career and knowledge base. The school has provided me with a seamless experience and have worked with me through my masters program. Being a mother of two toddlers and working full time, graduate classes have been an added component in my life and PC has made it very easy to balance classes with my busy life."

  • Degree: Political Science
"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"The school offers a number of graduate assistantships, which provide full tuition remition. Even without an assistantship, tuition is very affordable compared to other comparable universities. The faculty is of excellent quality and are always willing to assist you with research projects.I found the graduate seminars to be especially interesting and truly a rewarding experience. Furthermore, class sizes are relatively small, which allows your professors to become very familiar with your work. Overall, I could not be happier with my experience."

"If you intend to apply for Providence College's graduate programs, be prepared to pay with loans or out of pocket. The good news is that their graduate program is incredibly affordabe and offers a tremendous bang for your buck. The faculty are willing to support you if you wish to take on a serious project and the library can back you up with research assistance. Give this school serious thought."

"Providence College has made my graduate course work manageable and meaningful, especially since I also work as a full-time teacher. All course work has depth, practicality, and meaningful application to the field I expect to enter. The professors are all excellent, the campus is beautiful, and the atmosphere is safe. A colleague suggested I look into attending Providence College, and my enrollment and acceptance has been one of the best career decisions I have made thus far. I expect to fully enjoy my experience at PC!"
