School Description

Presbyterian College was founded in 1880 as Clinton College by Dr. William Plumer Jacobs. In 1886, the first facility, named Recitation Hall, was built at PC, and the construction work of the iconic Neville Hall building followed in the year 1906. Ever since its inception, PC has firmly focused on five aims in its education. Some of these aims are; to-do high grade; strong college work; sculpt a strong moral and Christian character; and to impart college learnings in reach of every young man who is worthy of it.

Today Presbyterian College is home to over 1,000 bachelor's degree seeking students, and the School of Pharmacy has a total enrollment of 296 students.

        A good place to begin one's education.

        I started at PC in the fall of 1975. I received a good basic education, enjoyed being part of the college's child outreach program, being part of the Christians In Action Coffee House that met in the basement of the student center, bringing a crusade to campus and leading a monthly Christian prayer breakfast plus being part of a Christian puppet ministry. In my sophomore year at PC, I felt God call me into full time ministry. I felt like I had conquered the entire educational system when I made a B in NT Greek. I am glad that I learned NT Greek at PC because it was required for my seminary education at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY. It was also helpful to have taken OT and NT survey courses as well as the course on the History of Christian Thought while at PC. I'm glad that I went to PC, transferred to ECU in Greenville, NC in 1977 for a BA in Sociology in 1979 and then went on to Asbury Theological Seminary for a M.Div. in 1983 and then again for a D.Min. in 2001.
