Hi, My name is Meredith Biber, and I am the Assistant Dean of Enrollment Management here at PC. After graduating in May 2004 with a B.A. in History with a minor in Spanish, I had an opportunity to live, work and study in Zurich, Switzerland for a year. Now that I am back in the States, it is an honor for me to represent Presbyterian College, a place that will always be home to me.
PC is an incredible place, and I feel very lucky to have spent my college years here. We are a community of trust and respect, held together by our honor code by which everyone lives. Our motto, “Dum Vivimus Servimus,” means while we live, we serve. These are not just words, but truly something the entire campus takes to heart.
For me, one of the best things about attending PC was having the chance to be involved in the community in a positive way. Through Student Volunteer Services, I was able to be a “big sister” and coordinate a child outreach program. And there are so many other ways to get involved on campus! Just to name a few, I participated in several intramural sports including flag football and softball, helped with planning special events such as concerts and Homecoming, served as an officer in my sorority, held a job on campus, participated in Celtic Cross, and went on a two week Scottish Heritage trip.The friendships I made at PC are ones I know will be lifelong, and the activities in which I participated have played a big part in shaping who I am now.
Our liberal arts philosophy ensures that all of our students graduate with more than just training in one particular area, but a comprehensive education that covers many subjects and concentrations. We have amazing professors and it’s great to be able to take classes from as many departments as you want. At PC, people know you and care about you. Your professors take an interest in you not only as a student, but as a person as well.
Trying to decide on a college can be tough – I know it was for me! The most helpful part of my decision making process was visiting campus; so my best advice is to schedule a campus visit and see PC for yourself! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. As the main point of contact for transfer and international students, do not hesitate to ask me any questions. I look forward to helping you in any way I can during your college search.
