Student services available to town students encourage growth spiritually, intellectually, morally, culturally, and socially. College life is not just living in the residence halls; it is involvement in Christian service, participation in campus sports and performing arts, interaction with friends, and taking advantage of available student resources. Town students are expected to read and abide by the entire Pathway, live according to the PCC Code of Conduct, and are encouraged to be involved in the overall college experience. Additional procedures outlined below are unique to town students.
If you have moved to the area to attend PCC, you are not considered a permanent resident and are therefore expected to attend all services of Campus Church. All town students must complete a church attendance form on Eagle’s Nest following the first Sun. of each semester and by the fifth of each month during the semester (for the previous month’s church attendance).
Attendance at opening meetings each semester is required for town students. See Arrival Week for times and dates.
Chapel is required every Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Fri. Those who do not have a class before 12 noon and will not be on campus before that time are excused from chapel.
Fine Arts Series/Sunday Reflections
Students taking twelve or more hours must attend all Fine Arts Series. Others may purchase Fine Arts Series season passes or tickets for individual performances. Children under 6 will not be admitted.
Sunday Reflections is a Campus Church service held twice during each semester. Town students who do not attend Campus Church are not required to attend unless they are participants in the service.
Attendance is required at recitals and forums as designated by your major or instructor.
Town students are not required to attend Thanksgiving activities. Classes will meet as usual on Fri.
Those taking twelve or more hours need to attend all Bible Conference services. Students taking fewer than twelve hours must attend two services per day. Attendance cards are turned in after each service at the Crowne Centre atrium desk.
Student Body/Class Meetings/Collegian Meetings
Student Body, class meetings, and collegian meetings are required for town students taking nine or more hours who have class before noon on Wed. Exception:
- Married students and students 23 and older are not required to attend collegian meetings.
Town students taking class cuts are under the class cut guidelines. To secure class cuts, please go to the Student Life Office for approval.
Students taking twelve or more hours must attend Commencement week activities and turn in attendance cards.
You should call each day you are sick and indicate which activities you will be missing.
- Mon.–Fri. from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., call (850) 478-8496, ext. 2050.
- After hours and weekends, call (850) 478-8496, ext. 2001.
- If you are employed on campus, also notify your work supervisor that you will be missing work.
Graf Clinic services are available.
Single students under 25 who are not living with their parents must live in the residence halls.
You are welcome to eat in the Four Winds, Varsity, or Grab N Go with a lunch pass purchased from the Business Office for $399 per semester. This pass can be used for the noon meal each Mon. through Fri. If you bring lunch from home, you are welcome to eat in the Commons.
Town students taking fewer than 12 credit hours a semester may order a yearbook through the Summit Office.
Single Town Students
Since protecting your testimony is vitally important, do not go to the beach in mixed groups, be at local parks after dark, or visit in the home or hotel room of an unmarried member of the opposite sex.
Your spouse may be involved on campus in many ways, like watching sporting events, using the library, attending church services, visiting with friends, shopping at The Campus Store, or eating at The Palms Grille. Your family is also welcome to enjoy West Campus (see Eagle’s Nest for times and directions). We expect spouses, as a part of our PCC family, to maintain the same standards as our students, both on and off campus.
Visiting in the Residence Halls
You are welcome to visit in residence halls. Show your current PCC Card and sign in at the residence hall desk. All residence hall guests need to be escorted to the room by the resident.
You can access the Eagle’s Nest website from off campus via eaglesnest.pcci.edu. This link will prove a valuable resource for your campus e-mail, chapel announcements, online forms, and many other schedules and resources you may need.
