Presbyterian College recognized the South Carolina State Arbor Day on Dec. 7 by planting a willow oak outside of the Smith administration building.
The College has committed to planting 11 willow oaks throughout the month of December. Planting, care, and management of the new trees and current trees comes as a part of the College’s recertification effort from Tree Campus USA, a recognition the College first received in December of 2015.
As a part of its initial application process, PC has formed a tree committee consisting of faculty, staff, student, and community members. The committee has worked with the College to establish a tree care plan to have best practices in place for tree care, including designated annual expenditures for trees.
Presbyterian College is located on a striking 240-acre campus in Clinton, between Columbia and Greenville, S.C. Offering challenging academics and a culture of honor, ethics, and service that prepares students to be leaders in communities, PC offers its students the benefit of engaging with an exceptional faculty who take individual interest in their students’ well-being, both personally and in the classroom. The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy opened in 2010, and is dedicated to the ideals of leadership, honor to the profession, and service to the community.
