PC Students Back on Campus

Presbyterian College students moved back to campus this weekend. Opening Convocation at PC is set for 11:00 Tuesday morning in Belk Auditorium.

Dr. Donald R. Raber II, provost, is featured speaker for the convocation tomorrow with address called “Promises,” examining the promise each student brings to PC as well as the promise of a PC education. In the process, Dr. Raber will update the campus community on the Promise of PC strategic plan, released last November.

After the address, new faculty, staff, and students will continue a PC tradition by signing the Honor Code.

PC President Bob Staton will offer remarks about the 2018 Martha Anne Green Award recipient before The Rev. Dr. Jeri Parris Perkins, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Clinton, formally introduces the recipient.

The Martha Anne Green Service to Church and College Award was established by both the First Presbyterian Church of Clinton and Presbyterian College to recognize the contributions of Martha Anne Green to two communities — her college and her church.

Three student awards will be presented during convocation. The Freshman Academic Award is presented annually to first-year students in the previous year’s class who achieved a 4.0 GPA in all coursework completed in their first year at PC. The Department of Religion and Philosophy presents the Fraser Bible Award to a member of last year’s freshman class who is of exemplary character and who earned the highest average grade in Bible for the year. The Department of Religion and Philosophy presents the Hay Religion Award to the student who has the highest-grade point average in four semesters of religion and/or philosophy taken during their first two years at PC.

Classes for PC undergraduates begin this Wednesday, August 22nd.
