Residence halls for men are Ballard and Coberly Halls and Young Tower. Residence halls for women are Griffith, Dixon, and Bradley Towers.
The residence hall is a “home away from home” that provides spiritual fellowship and Christian friendship. PCC residence hall rooms are completely carpeted, air-conditioned, have wireless Internet access, telephone lines with voice mail for each student, and private (or adjoining) bathrooms.
Each building is equipped with large laundry rooms with several washers and dryers. All single, undergraduate students under 25 years of age who are not living with their parents are required to reside in the residence halls.
Where are most college memories made? Not the lecture hall. Not at basketball games. Not even in the Commons. At PCC, most college memories will be made in the residence hall where you study, pray together, learn to live with others, and make lifelong friendships.
Jonathan (MT) said, “For a college student, roommates can be an unexpected gift. As a freshman, they can also be a necessary one. When I arrived at PCC I knew no one. My roommates were my first friends, happily taking me with them to meals and trips off campus. They also played a large role in developing my college study habits. Through their example of consistent study, followed by periods of relaxation and humor, I was able to see how college life could be educational while still being fun. I am thankful for how God provided me with wonderful roommates who set the tone for my entire college experience.”
Sarah (TX) said, “You can have a lot of friends around campus, but your roommates become like family. Learning to live with two or three other people makes you more concerned about others than yourself.”
Matt (KS), a homeschooler, said, “My roommates treated me really well and taught me a lot about college life.”
Women’s residence halls have fitness rooms with ellipticals, exercise bikes, and treadmills. Several residence halls also have dayrooms on each floor with couches, tables, and chairs.
For music students, or anyone who wants to practice an instrument, Bradley Tower and Young Tower have soundproof piano practice rooms.
Jim (SC) said, “The practice rooms are so convenient! I go there all the time and play my heart out.”
Students find that a residence hall is more than a place to sleep and hang clothes. A residence hall is a place to bond with Christians of different backgrounds and build a spiritual foundation with others.
Damaris (Germany) said, “When I first came to PCC, what helped me adjust was the simple fact that all the other freshmen were new and without their families just like I was, but there were plenty of people to answer my questions. Also, I thoroughly enjoy coming to a Christian college with Christian friends—it’s like coming to a retreat.”
Such testimonies prove that PCC residence halls can truly be a home away from home.
