It’s good to be a Blue Hose

How the Student Referral Program works:

You already know what it means to be a Blue Hose. It means family and community, and it means a great education. Share your PC story to let the student know why you think the student will succeed as a Blue Hose. Encourage the student to visit campus and promote PC when the student enrolls. 

What can you tell students?

You know how life-changing a PC education is. But if you’d like a few reasons to tell the student to be a Blue Hose, here are a few:

Rigorous academics

93% of graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months after graduation.

A liberal arts education

PC’s liberal arts education prepares students for life after college. PC graduates are well-rounded, thoughtful and intelligent.

PC feels like home

Year after year, PC students say they chose PC because it felt like home when they visited campus. Students enjoy small class sizes, where they can speak, be heard, and be seen.

Active student body

PC students stay active and engaged on and off our vibrant campus. They get involved by joining clubs, playing intramural sports, traveling, and taking part in programs and events.

“Blue Pride”

There’s a lively sense of “Blue Pride” on campus as students support their fellow classmates on our 19 Blue Hose Division I athletic teams.

Learning outside the classroom

100% of students study abroad, intern or participate in a research project with professors. These opportunities prepare students for life after college.

*Your nomination and recommendation will be given full consideration. But please note that your referral does not guarantee a student will be admitted to PC. All applicants must meet the academic and personal standards required for admission by Presbyterian College.

The Presbyterian College Referral Scholarship cannot be combined with the Legacy Scholarship or the Emerging Church Leader Scholarship. To remain compliant with NCAA regulations, the scholarship awarded is in no way related to athletics ability or potential involvement in PC Athletic programs, as stated in the NCAA Division I Manual.
