Ten Dollar Tuition?

So it’s finally November.  That means that we have less than two months of school left!  Although it doesn’t seem like there is a lot of time left, we still have the whole second half of the semester—and with it there are plenty of exciting events to look forward to. One of those events is College Days.

College Days is a unique opportunity available to prospective students.  Students who are interested in attending Pensacola Christian College can come to visit the campus, stay in the residence halls, attend classes, and see everything that PCC has to offer.  You would think all of this would cost a fortune, right?   How about $10?

That’s right.  For ten dollars, any 10th-12th grader can stay in the residence halls, visit classes, see the campus, and dine at one of PCC’s cafeterias.  Yep.  You heard me right.

When is College Days?  November 23rd-25th.  If you would like to stay until the 26th, it will cost $5 extra—but that’s still a great deal.  It sure beats a hotel, right?

College Days is all about experiencing college life.  You’ll have a chance to catch a glimpse of what it’s like to be a college student.  By staying in the residence halls, you’ll know what it’s like to live with roommates for a few days.  It’s a great way to meet people and make connections with students if you are thinking about coming!

If you are planning to attend College Days this Thanksgiving, I have a few tips for you:

  • Attend classes!  This will give you an opportunity to see what school is like at the college level.  Pick classes that are of interest to you.  If you would like some personal suggestions from me, feel free to ask in the comments section below!
  • Turkey Bowl!  What is Turkey Bowl?  It’s the soccer championship between the top two collegian teams at PCC.  The game takes place on Thanksgiving Day, so make sure you work up a good appetite by cheering the teams and enjoying all of the festivities.  After that, turkey dinner!  And to top it off?  Come watch PCC’s dramatic production of H.M.S. Pinafore.  I’ll be playing a sailor in the play!
  • Pray.  Before your visit to PCC, prayerfully ask God to help you with your college decision.  Few decisions in life are more important than where you decide to go to college.  College can be an amazing faith-building experience—but it can also be a place where all of your beliefs are torn down.  Where you go to college is a serious choice!  So why not ask God to help you decide?

I hope that College Days will be a blessing to those who visit this November.  When I visited PCC for College Days four years ago, it made a deep impression on me.  I made friends, I saw the amazing campus, and I caught a glimpse of the Spirit on all of the smiling faces.  So if you are pondering the decision to visit for College Days this November, be sure to come and see everything PCC has to offer!

    Great post!! I encourage everyone to be a great host/hostess to the college days guests! I was a guest here, and my roomates were really nice! If I had gotten bad ones, I think that I might not have come! So, you never know what might end up happeining with a student that stays in your room!

    Be friendly, nice and helpful!!!!

      I visited PCC a little over a week ago, and I had amazing roommates! As a future student, I can definely say that roommates can be one of the most deciding factors of going to PCC. My roommates made a big impact on me, and surprisingly, they greatly impacted my sister who previously had negative opinions about the college. I want to be a great roommate for prospective students when I am a student there!

    College days is the reason I’m here now. I loved it and can’t wait until my sister comes down for the College Days in November!

    I really want to visit PCC! I get all excited and crazy-happy by looking at every available picture at least ten times. Seeing the foundation of Faith that PCC is based on caught my attention, also because I have been doing the Abeka DVD program… with Mr. McBride 😀

    Although I’m still a High School student, I REALLY want to visit. But then again… I live across the country… ergh! Thanks for all the information!
