Presbyterian College is a private liberal arts college in Clinton, South Carolina, USA. Presbyterian College, or PC, is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA. PC was founded in 1880 by William Plumer Jacobs, a prominent Presbyterian minister who also founded the nearby Thornwell Home and School for Boys and Girls. The college's current President is Dr. John V. Griffith. Presbyterian College has around 1300 students and runs on an endowment of around $100 million. PC also has 84 full-time faculty members and boasts more South Carolina Professors of the Year (6) than any other South Carolina college or university. The motto of PC is "Dum Vivimus Servimus" or "While We Live We Serve." Service is a crucial part of PC, and almost all of its students partake in some form of service by the time they graduate. Consequently, students are encouraged to participate in programs like Student Volunteer Services, one of the largest student-run organizations on campus. The PC mascot is the Blue Hose, represented by a Scotsman clad in a kilt with blue stockings. PC athletics are a part of the Big South Conference of NCAA's Division I. PC is also home to Cyrus, the largest bronze statue of a Scotsman in the world. Presbyterian's 240 acre (1 km²) campus has six buildings on the National Historic Registry including Doyle Hall, Laurens Hall, Jacobs Hall, President's House, Neville Hall, and the Bell Tower located between Neville Hall and Smyth Dormitory. Interestingly, Neville Hall is rumored to be haunted, and is also labeled as a nuclear fallout shelter.
