Future Blue Hose,
On behalf of the entire Blue Hose community, congratulations on your acceptance to Presbyterian College. Admittance into PC is no easy task, so you should feel great pride in your accomplishment. You may be surprised to know that the two of us have something in common. I, like you, had the opportunity to join the PC family. And after much debate, I decided to accept the College’s offer, recognizing the worth of PC’s academic reputation, size, and community.
The years since graduating from PC have revealed one thing to me: I cannot picture myself graduating from any other institution. Unfortunately, my four years as a PC student flew by in the blink of an eye – as time seems to do – but I cherished every moment of my time in Clinton. The College gave me so much – it provided me with confidence in my abilities and a better understanding of myself and my aspirations; it presented me with opportunities that enabled me to learn and grow as a leader, which now greatly benefit me in my role as the president of Presbyterian College. But I am most thankful for this – PC gave me a college home.
I look forward to welcoming you to campus in March at Accepted Students Day. Until then, let me leave you with one piece of advice that I gave to my children, two of whom ended up choosing PC, as they searched for the perfect college: find your home away from home. I wish you the best as you decide where that will be for you.
Listen carefully because PC just might be calling you home.
On, On PC!
