Summer Programming for New Students

Evolving information regarding COVID-19 may modify these plans. Please refer to our website for any updates later this summer.

During the “First Days in Friartown” program, students will learn more about campus resources, academic, spiritual, and student life; and begin building connections with peers and members of the PC community.

These virtual events are required of ALL new students – resident and commuter. See your Class of 2024 or Fall Transfer Student mailing for additional information and tasks to be completed between now and the fall semester.

Class of 2024

In June, most first-year students met peers in small groups and learned firsthand about academics, getting involved on campus, and student life from orientation leaders, faculty, and staff, during the First Day in Friartown program. If you have yet to attend First Days in Friartown, please contact our office to learn more about our make-up event later this summer.

In July, Class of 2024 students will also connect with faculty from their declared major or the Undeclared Advising Program, to learn more about the College’s academic curriculum, professional development opportunities, and their fall course schedule. Major-specific event information will be sent to students’ PC email in June and early July. First-year students will be invited to additional optional programming throughout the summer months to answer their questions and keep them connected to their new campus community.

Fall Transfer Students: Register HERE

On Thurs., July 30 from approximately 10:00am-4:00pm EST, new transfer students will have an opportunity to meet peers and learn firsthand about getting involved and student life from orientation leaders and staff. They will also connect with faculty from their declared major or the Undeclared Advising Program, to learn more about the College’s academic curriculum, professional development opportunities, and their fall course schedule. Please refer to the Admission Portal to confirm which major you applied for at PC. If you wish to change that major, you will need to complete a New Student Change of Major Form – preferably well in advance of registering for First Days in Friartown this summer.

Transfer students will also be invited to optional programming throughout the summer months to answer their questions and keep them connected to their new campus community.
