A Day in Friartown

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​O​n select days, we invite prospective students to spend A Day in Friartown.

While on campus, you will have the opportunity to:​

  • Be paired up with a current student who will show you their typical day
  • Sit in on classes to directly experience academic life*
  • Enjoy breakfast in McPhail’s with several members of our PC Community
  • Walk around campus and explore various buildings
  • Enjoy lunch in Raymond Dining Hall​

Each Day in Friartown begins at 9:30 AM and concludes at 2:30 PM

Parents are invited to a special presentation while students take part in the Day in Friartown program. A panel session will begin at the start of the student’s visit and last approximately 30-45 minutes. An optional tour of campus will follow.​

*Please note that the availability of courses within certain disciplines may be limited. To preserve the learning environment for our current students and the faculty members teaching our courses, we are unable to accommodate specific class visit requests. We thank you for your understanding.​

Regarding Nursing and Health Sciences: Because these majors were new for the Fall 2023 semester, students will be unable to attend classes in those fields. The Day in Friartown program will still be an excellent opportunity to experience campus and academic life more generally. For students interested in Nursing or Health Sciences, we can offer the opportunity to attend a science course based on classroom availability.  

Registration is Available for Admitted Students through the Admission Status Portal
