Fall Semester Starts Monday at PC

The fall semester begins this coming Monday at Presbyterian College, a week earlier than originally scheduled. The fall semester will end on November 25, a day before Thanksgiving and two weeks earlier than originally scheduled. The compressed academic calendar minimizes travel during the semester and provides extra flexibility in the late autumn and early winter if circumstances change.

“This fall will look different than any semester we’ve had at PC,” said Dr. Joy Smith, PC’s vice president for campus life and dean of students. “We’ve been working hard all summer to get to the point where students can return.”

In the past, PC students rang in the fall semester by volunteering at various organizations across Laurens County on Service Day. Due to the pandemic, service opportunities, like the ones designed to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, will take place over four days to allow for social distancing.
