All This for 10 Dollars?

I remember when I first visited PCC. I came during College Days and was able to experience the life of a college student for 2 days and 2 nights. The advantages to my visit were being able to visit the classes of my choice and staying in the residence halls with students. I felt like I was actually at college! (Besides having no homework to do) Since I was interested in Missions, which is now my major, I wanted to check out the Bible classes. One of the classes that I chose to visit was a class on the book of Romans. I absolutely loved the class and the teacher whose name was Mr. Taylor. I was so excited about PCC and I knew that God wanted me to go there. I was so surprised at how much I was able to do for just 10 dollars! I had all the food I could ever want, I stayed in the residence halls with students, I observed the “ins and outs” of PCC’s campus, and I was able to use the Sports Center for free just like the students!

Now that I am a sophomore headed into my junior year, I am in the same class that I visited when I came for College Days. I also have the same teacher, Mr. Taylor! I have been so challenged by his life and his knowledge of the Word of God. He shares with us what God has brought him through and all that he has learned from his walk with the Lord. It is always an encouragement when he takes time in class to ask what we are learning from the book of Romans and let us know that he is praying for us. That is the heart of the faculty here at Pensacola Christian College. They desire to encourage us as students and challenge us to have a closer walk with Christ. I could say similar things about each teacher I have had. The faculty at PCC really is here for us as students. If you don’t believe me, come see for yourself! I encourage you to visit during College Days sometime (the next one is April 14–15) and find out for yourself if this is where God would have you to come!

    I never actually attended “college days”, but I did take a trip with my senior year of high school to see what the college was like. It was a wonderful opportunity to really see what PCC was all about. It wasn’t until this trip that I realized God wanted me here. 🙂

    Visit the college any chance you may get! It’s worth it.

    I went to college days last week. The campus was amazing! I am homeschooled through the A Beka Video Program. I even got to meet two of my video teachers, Mr. McBride and Mrs. Thompson!!!!!! I can’t wait to go back for graduation from high school in May. I begin working there in June. I am soooo excited!

      I’m a video student too! (: You met Mr. McBride and Mrs. Thompson!? I can’t wait to meet them. Mr. McBride is my favorite teacher.

      • Olivia

        yes, he even preached at chapel while I was there. He is my all time favorite high school teacher!!!!! All the rest are good too. Are you graduating in May???

      Mr. McBride and Mrs. Thompson are my two very favorite teachers here at PCC! They’re both so inspirational. I am graduating in May in English Ed./History. You think they’re great on video– have them in a real class. It’s amazing! God’s truly blessed them with a heart for teaching. I hope to be like both of them when I’m a teacher.

        I just finished up my school work last Thursday! I used the A Beka program throughout my entire education. I met Mr. Mcbride when my sister graduated and I hope I get to meet him again in May! It would be so wonderful to meet the both of you! I am coming down again in the fall to start my freshman year of college and I would love to have made some friends that are coming to the college too! 🙂

    I actually never visited PCC during college days either, but I visited in ’09 for the senior college getaway. It was really amazing! I was fairly sure that this was where I was going to college after I graduated high school, but coming for a visit confirmed it for me. One of my main reasons for coming to PCC was the heart of the staff and faculty. They have a sincere desire to serve God and to prepare you for your future career. If PCC is the place God wants you to go, you are going to have an amazing time here!

    Also during the April 14-15 College Days, guests can watch a sneak preview of the Dramatic Production, “Early American Life,” which includes stories from the Revolutionary War Era through to the time of Mark Twain. It’s a lot of fun! Everyone should consider coming to see this wonderful production. 🙂

    Definetly enjoyed my college days before I actually became a student!! I would certainly encourage those considering attending Pensacola Christian College to check out college days, have a lot of fun, and meet some friendly folks:)

    College Days is a fantastic time to come meet the students and faculty, check out the facilities, and enjoy the “powdered sugar” white sandy beaches just minutes away. A great activity is the Friday morning “College Classes—A Student’s Perspective.” During this time, you as the prospective student get to choose a course of study that interests you, team up with a friendly college student who is in that major, and visit some classes in that field. This is a great informal time for learning more about academics and campus life. (Look for me under the Prelaw sign!) But if you, like I was, are unable to come during College Days, don’t let that stop you from visiting! The people are still smiling, the facilities are still awesome, and the beaches are still gorgeous throughout the school year.

    I was wondering, when your there as a student how much does food cost in the dining halls? and do you have 2 pay for the use of the sports center like to go bowling and such? I just want to get an average of what its gonna cost=)

    • All meals (3 per day, 7 days a week) are included as part of the tuition, room, and board, which is $7,500 per year. Students get to enjoy Sports Center activites for free. There’s bowling, rock climbing, ice skating, waterpark activities, and much more to choose from!

        Thanks for the info Rachael, I really appreciate it! I hope to attend PCC for college in the future. It looks like an amazing school! I,m thankful to PCC for making it so affordable so more people will have the opportunity to be in such a spiritual, friendly atmosphere=)

    I didn’t actually come during “college days,” but my youth group did come and visit. Then did I actually realize that God wanted me to come here. I loved the classes, and the teachers. Now I will be graduating next year, and because of the contract program I am able to work my way though college. 🙂

    I went to the April 14-15 College Days! It was an amazing experience to see PCC for myself. I was very impressed by the genuine faculty and students there. The professors truly want to help you succeed academically and spiritually. While I was down there, I also got to meet Mr. McBride who is one of my video teachers! I turned my application in for Fall ’12 as a nursing major, as I really think that this is where God is leading me. College Days were extremely helpful for helping me decide if PCC is right for me.
