Presbyterian College has been featured in “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2018.” Compiled by former “New York Times” education editor Edward B. Fiske, among the top independent voices in college admissions, “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2018 is a selective, subjective, and systematic look at three-hundred-plus colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, and the UK.”

The “Fiske Guide to Colleges,” which publishes detailed profiles, including interviews with students, is fully updated and expanded every year. According to “USA Today,” the “Fiske Guide” is the most authoritative source of information for college-bound students and their parents.

The guide’s profile on PC opens by stating that “Presbyterian College students live up to the motto ‘Dum Vivimus Servimus,’” and then explains that approximately 70 percent of the students on campus participate in community service while at PC.

Throughout its profile, the guide repeatedly references the College’s strong academics, commitment to service, and faculty-student relationships. One student in the profile is quoted as saying, “This is obviously not a school for apathetic college students. PC students are hard workers.”

Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of the “New York Times,” when he realized that college-bound students and their families needed better information on which to base their educational choices. He is also the co-author of the “Fiske Guide to Getting into the Right College” and “Fiske Real College Essays That Work.”
