Pre-Pharmacy
Hometown: Effingham, SC

My advice to new students would be to not take life so seriously. Enjoy every moment and make great use of your time. Nine times out of ten other college students are struggling just like you. Two Random About Me facts: I enjoy eating fruit more than the average person and working out is not life *shrugs* . My favorite thing about PC is that I feel loved because I feel like a key player in this community. ♥

Political Science
Hometown: Columbia, SC

I am a Political Science major with a Pre-Law minor from Columbia, South Carolina. I am obsessed with the book/movie Eat Pray Love and after graduation I plan to follow in Elizabeth Gilbert’s footsteps to travel to Italy, India, and Indonesia in a year. My favorite thing about PC is how it feels like I have found my family on campus and I know I always have someone to count on. My advice to incoming freshmen is to not worry about what major is going to make you the most money but to major in something you love because if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.

Early Childhood Education
Hometown: Irmo, SC

I am an Early Childhood Education Major from Irmo, South Carolina. My favorite book is the Slammed series because it’s majority a love story, but with a really realistic and heart-wrenching storyline that’s had me hooked unlike any other book I’ve ever read! If I could give one piece of advice to incoming freshman, it would be to make sure you don’t get too caught up in the freedom of college life. Have fun, but always remain true to who you are and where you are headed in life!

Biology
Hometown: Union, SC

I am a Biology major from Union, SC with plans to attend Pharmacy School afterwards. I’m on the cross country team so you must imagine how much I enjoy running! I am a very outgoing individual. In my free time I love to sit in front of Springs in the rocking chairs or relax with friends in Enos in the wonderful trees in front of Smyth. My advice to the new incoming students would be to enjoy your time here at PC because it is going to FLY by! Take a step outside of the box and try new things because you may come to find out that you actually like it.

English & Theatre
Hometown: Chapin, SC

I am an English and Theatre major from Chapin, South Carolina and my favorite place to be on campus is either Neville Hall or Harper Theater. My advice to incoming freshman is to get out and do stuff around campus, because once you find something you really like (ex: THEATRE!!) it’s a great way to make friends!

Hometown: Asheville, NC

I am a Chemistry major with minors in Biology and History with hopes of going to Medical School. My favorite quote is “Don’t let anyone tell you you’re too young to accomplish something, a baby shark is still a shark.” My favorite place on campus is the front sign. One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the sign at night and look at Neville. My advice for incoming freshmen is to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.

I am a political science major with intent to attend law school after graduation. My favorite quote of all time is “you reap what you sow.” I’m a 6’5 football player but I’m truly a big kid on the inside, who enjoys hearing other people laugh.
