We are the Blue Hose

You aren't seeing things—we really do call ourselves Blue Hose. You'd think being known as the Blue Hose (think socks) isn't that remarkable, but our winning the Mascot National Championship begs to differ. (Yes, that's a real thing.) But Presbyterian College is known for so much more than our blue socks.

Customizable academics
We recognize that students like you have an assortment of interests that may all differ. Maybe you love biology and music. Maybe you love history and computer programming. We won't make you choose only one of your passions; instead, we'll encourage you to explore all your interests through the liberal arts. This freedom is one of the keys to making the most of your time as a student at Presbyterian College. 

Experience = learning
Going on adventures can be a great way to learn. We encourage our students to take their learning beyond textbooks and outside of the classroom. That's why 100% of Blue Hose study abroad, conduct research, or complete an internship before graduation. Just think: Would you rather read about cancer research or throw on a lab coat and help find the cure yourself? Would you rather see photos of Ireland in a history book or stroll down the lively streets of Dublin with your professor? See what we mean? So pack your bags and get ready for your adventure! 

Undeniable outcomes
Four years at Presbyterian College are transformative. Blue Hose leave PC's oak-lined plazas with confidence because of what they've experienced. They remember the lessons learned on the front steps of Neville Hall. They remember the leadership opportunities given to them by the Honor Council. It's not just the color of our graduates' socks that makes them memorable—it's their experiences at PC that enable Blue Hose to be different and stand out from the crowd.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “The education I received at PC is second to none. The rigor of my courses combined with the mentoring from my professors prepared me to succeed in veterinary school and in life.”

    • Kristen Peagler ’17
  • “PC gave me the avenue to pursue real, professional research. It provided me with opportunities to get my research published and present at conferences.”

    • Clay Wright ’19
  • “I knew PC was the right choice for me because it’s a small school with the same, if not better, opportunities than a larger school would offer such as leadership opportunities, D1 sports, and strong academic courses."
