Family Day is here!

If you are an accepted student in the Class of 2018, please join us this Saturday, April 12th, for PC’s annual Family Day! This is an excellent opportunity to see all that PC has to offer as you make your final decision for college. With the May 1st deadline approaching rapidly, the best advice I can give any accepted student is to visit all the colleges that you’re still interested in. Even if you find that PC isn’t your top choice, it’s better to figure that out before you sign the dotted line. Conversely, you might be reluctant to visit at first but end up realizing that PC is your top choice.

PC pulls out all the stops for Family Day. It begins this Friday night with the Liberal Arts Honors Program dinner and Multicultural Overnight program (both by invitation only). On Saturday, there are campus tours, city tours, department panels, mock Civ lectures, and open houses of pretty much every campus building. There is also morning Mass available followed by a welcome ceremony in the Mullaney Gym. You’ll even get a chance to see a dorm, which isn’t always a part of normal campus tours. Keep an eye out for the 2014 Big East Championship trophy on display near Mullaney…

Every Admission Ambassador will be on call this weekend, so just look for the people in the gray polo shirts if you have any questions. I’ll be working registration all morning and then mingling with families at lunch. I look forward to welcoming you and your families to campus!

Hitting the Ground Running

What the campus looked like when my class ended early at 4:30 P.M.

After a restful winter break, it's back to PC for my sixth (!) semester. Similar to junior year in high school, junior year in college is the time when the workload, both academic and extracurricular, becomes nearly unbearable. In addition to school, … [Continue reading]

At Rejse Er At Leve

A sunset on one of my last days in Denmark

The title of this post, pronounced "at RYE-suh air at LEE-vuh," comes from Danish author H.C. Andersen. The translation, one that was taught to me in Danish class early in the semester, is "To travel is to live." I can think of no better quote to … [Continue reading]
