Hi there, I am looking for some more in depth information about PC social life, as my D is looking there but we won’t be able to make a visit before applications are due. I’ve had a very hard time trying to find information about the school. From what I’ve read on here, a current student described it as a “party school”. Didn’t think that would be the case at a religious school, can anyone elaborate? How often do students go out, where, etc.? Also, what is the typical student like? Are they artsy, preppy, entitled, etc.?
About Western Civ classes, I have read that there are 3 common semesters and the fourth is a class of the students choice. How many choices are there and what are they? How is the class taught - discussion based or lecture style with a lot of assessments? Would one describe this class as more busy work that is the majority of a student’s homework load or just about the same as other classes? Hoping a parent of or a current student can elaborate! Thanks!
