Class of 2017 arrives on campus

PC’s Class of 2017 moved onto campus today. The 311-member class hails from 20 different states and four countries, including England, Germany, Scotland, and Spain.

“The incoming class of PC students has the ability to contribute to campus immediately,” said Brian Fortman, Dean of Admissions. “They are an exceptional group, with leadership and service backgrounds.”

PC’s newest students include valedictorians, salutatorians, and many who excelled academically in the top 10% of their high school graduating class. They also include servant leaders, musicians, and artists. A little more than a third of the class will compete as Blue Hose student-athletes, and nearly 15% will continue their own family tradition of attending PC.
