          • Testimony
            1990-2003, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            I graduated from PC in 2003. As an alumnus, and someone that currently has a career in development in higher education, I have really come to appreciate the benefits and pride that comes with having had a PC education. I enjoy reading communications from the Providence College Alumni Association, love following PC athletics, and feel that as an alumnus I am solicited in a way that is reasonable and respectful. I am happy with the quality of education I received at Providence and even more grateful for the friendships that came with the experience.

          • Testimony
            1968-1972, BS, Sociology

            The College gave me life-long friends and interests. As a liberal arts foundation, the College initiated my path towards social justice. Providence College always raises my expectations for people and opportunities. My four years provided a way to think above conservative fears and resistance to view real potentials. I suppose that why I've worked for 40 years pursuing care and integration in the field of disability through scientific and social research.

          • Testimony
            1975-1979, Bachelor of Arts

            Providence College was important to my growth as a person and professional because it taught me how to think, not what to think. Through programs such as Western Civilization, philosophy, and theology, Providence gives its students the opportunity to make connections, to think critically, to synthesize and evaluate rather than simply react or go along with the crowd. Another key advantage at Providence is the Dominican community and culture. The intellectual rigor of the Order underlies all the academic work, and the spiritual comfort offered by the priests is available to all those who choose to embrace it.
