Presbyterian College Joins SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards

By SAGE Scholars — October 26, 2021

South Carolina's Presbyterian College, embracing the future while rooted in the traditional church-based values of pluralism, hospitality, service, justice, and grace, has become the 40th college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA to join the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program.

Located on a 240-acre campus in Clinton, SC, PC recently announced the purchase of the nearby Capitol Theatre. A renovation is underway to transform it into a performing arts center, a movie theater, and "the region's most impressive arena" for competitive video gaming. By next fall, the Capitol Theatre will host practices and games for PC’s new varsity esports team.

PC's 15 varsity sports teams - nicknamed the Blue Hose - play NCAA Division I competition in the Big South Conference. More than a third of the 1,000 undergraduates are varsity athletes. Students can choose from 90 undergraduate majors and pre-professional programs, many with a strong science emphasis. 100% of students participate in either an internship, research, or a study abroad program. 41% of students participate in Greek Life.

Founded in 1880, PC has been governed by an Honor Code and a culture of ethics since 1915 - but today PC is also known as a "best value" in creating social mobility for first-generation students. The College boasts an impressive 62% four-year graduation rate.
PC is the 6th South Carolina private college to participate in Tuition Rewards.

Presbyterian College

Presbyterian College is located between Greenville and Columbia, South Carolina - in the small college town of Clinton. PC is noted as much for its challenging academics as it is for its one-of-a-kind mascot: the Blue Hose.

PC students are one-of-a-kind too: They bring all sorts of interests and abilities to campus and are given the freedom to pursue them. Students customize their education by choosing from more than 90 majors and pre-professional programs.

Inside the classroom, students are not only taught but mentored by faculty members whose #1 priority is their students’ success. 100% of students further their education by conducting research, interning, or studying abroad. Blue Hose sports teams compete in NCAA Division 1.

PC students get involved on campus, where the culture of honor and ethics is as noticeable as the columns on the Georgian buildings. It all adds up to preparing students to be fulfilled in their personal and professional lives when they graduate.
