esponding to the needs of Rhode Island, the Dominican Order of Preachers made a special commitment to the state in 1917 and founded Providence College — the only institution of higher learning in North America that is conducted by the Order. In 93 years, Providence College has steadily moved to a position of national prominence, while maintaining a personal, community-like atmosphere that fosters growth and development among its student population. Providence College’s rich heritage dates back to 1216, or the origins of the Dominican Order in Spain. Through the ages, the Dominican Friars became known as the “champions of the faith,” spreading the gospel message through the centuries into every corner of the globe. Today, Dominican Friars continue to spread the gospel in a wide range of remote areas of the world, to teach at every level of the United States educational system. With the Dominican tradition as its foundation, Providence College focuses on developing the entire person through its values-oriented education. The college seeks to complement a student’s knowledge with knowledge of his own values — values that will remain the foundation for sound judgement throughout a lifetime. To that end, Providence College aims to relate its curriculum to the problems of contemporary society, offering diverse programs of study that remain grounded in the liberal arts. Students may choose from some 60 concentrations ranging from computer science to labor relations to theatre arts. In addition, qualified students who wish to structure a program not specifically provided under the regular concentrations may develop their own program with the approval of the dean of the college. As part of the core curriculum, all students take a two-year, team-taught course, Development of Western Civilization (DWC) which integrates the study of literature, philosophy, history and religious studies through the ages into a cohesive interdisciplinary unit. Situated just on the fringe of downtown Providence, the College’s location enables students to have easy access to the many social, cultural, educational and recreational amenities of urban life - the Providence Public Library; entertainment at the Providence Performing Arts Center; sporting events, entertainment and trade shows at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center and the Providence Convention Center and dozens of fine restaurants. With several other major educational institutions located in Providence, the city has become a hub of collegiate activity.

The Mission of the College Providence College is a primarily undergraduate, liberal arts, Catholic institution of higher education. Committed to fostering academic excellence through the sciences and humanities, the College provides a variety of opportunities for intellectual, social, moral and spiritual growth in a supportive environment. The College actively cultivates intellectual, spiritual, ethical and aesthetic values within the context of the Judaeo-Christian heritage. These values are nurtured by the unique tradition of the Dominican Order which emphasizes quality teaching and scholarship. Providence College recognizes the unity of the human family that proceeds from its one Creator. It therefore encourages the deepest respect for the essential dignity, freedom and equality of every person and welcomes qualified women and men from all religious, racial and ethnic backgrounds. Providence College prepares its students to be responsible and productive citizens to serve in their own society and the greater world community.

ACADEMICS AT PROVIDENCE COLLEGE ATHLETIC ACADEMIC SERVICES The Office of Academic Services (OAS) provides specialized support to student-athletes in light of the unique time demands, responsibilities, and rules governing participation in intercollegiate athletics. Holistic services are provided in a safe, personal environment where academic growth is a priority, personal development and independence are enhanced, and long-term success is nurtured by a staff which models these same commitments. Student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom as well as on the field or court, may be nominated for the America East All-Academic Team, BIG EAST Academic All-Star Team, the HOCKEY EAST Academic Honor Roll, NFHCA Division I Academic Team or ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American Program presented by CoSIDA. The Providence College Athletic Department also honors student-athletes each semester who have achieved a 3.00 grade point average or higher.

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE REQUIREMENTS Providence College is primarily a coeducational four-year undergraduate college of liberal arts and sciences. Its main objective is the intellectual development of its students through the disciplines of the sciences and the humanities, equipping them to become productive and responsible citizens of a democratic society. To be eligible for a degree, a student must accumulate 116 credit hours over an eight semester period with an overall quality point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. In addition, a student must complete a minimum of 24 upper-division credits in the field of their major with an overall 2.0 cumulative average unless stipulated. Included in the total credit hours are the following prerequisites for any degree: Development of Western Civilization (20); Social Sciences (6); Natural Science (6); Philosophy (6); Theology (6); Mathematics (3) and Fine Arts (3). The remaining credit hours are elective with at least nine coming from areas outside one’s major.

The most popular majors for the Class of 2010 were Marketing, English, Finance, Biology and Elementary/Secondary Education.

It’s a system that Providence is quite proud of and one which we’ve worked long and hard to establish. Any student-athlete who feels the need for tutorial assistance can utilize the college’s tutorial center, as well as the athletic department’s advisors who can supply them with individuals capable of assisting them in their particular course of study.

FRIARS IN THE COMMUNITY The Providence College volleyball team is committed to academics and serving the community. Many of the team’s student-athletes are involved in the Chi Alpha Sigma organization for academic excellence. In addition, every four-year member of the volleyball program has graduated in four years at Providence. The Friars also participate in a number of community outreach events throughout the year. 2009-10 projects included visiting local schools for National Reading Week, volunteering in a toy drive at a local Ronald McDonald house and participating in local and national breast cancer awareness programs.

Junior Lauren Fletcher reads a story to local elementary school students.

The 2009 PC Volleyball team wore pink in its match against Hartford to raise awareness for breast cancer through the “Dig Pink” program.




Providence, Rhode Island is among America's most dynamic, diverse and exciting new destination cities. Come and see it for yourself. Gather with thousands in the rejuvenated downtown for a magical WaterFire display. Catch a Broadway-bound show. Enjoy dinner in one of the city's many award-winning restaurants, then head to Federal Hill to sip an authentic caffe latte. Mingle with the more than 26,000 students who attend the city's five colleges and universities. Explore internship opportunities with the city's businesses and nonprofits and see a real-world path to career success. Providence College's scenic 105-acre campus is located just 10 minutes away from one of the most historic and cosmopolitan city centers in the United States. Come to Providence and embrace all that America's Renaissance City has to offer.


It's where Colonial-era cobblestone streets intersect with gleaming new office buildings. Where young men and women from across the nation intern with some of the most recognized names in finance, business, technology and healthcare. In Providence, there's always something happening, always a new exhibition, bookshop or bistro to check out. The New York Times describes it as "one of the hippest towns in New England." And Money Magazine calls it "the best city in the East for young professionals."


Known as the Ocean State, Rhode Island boasts more than 400 miles of stunning coastline. The world-famous mansions of Newport, along with the shores of Narragansett Bay are just a 30-minute drive from Providence. The ski slopes of New England make a great day trip, and the beaches of Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are all within easy reach.


Providence is a short drive from T.F. Green Airport. Known as the "hasslefree gateway to New England," the airport is conveniently located close to Interstate 95 and offers non-stop flight connections to cities throughout the United States and Caribbean.
