Founded in 1880, Presbyterian College exists today as the manifestation of one man's dream. William Plumer Jacobs, minister of Clinton's first Presbyterian church and founder of Thornwell Orphanage, envisioned Clinton as a center for Presbyterian education in South Carolina. His dream, supported by generations who followed him, has created and maintained this strong liberal arts college, keeping it rich in the ideals of honor and service.
Presbyterian College includes more than 200 vintage photographs that trace the course of the college's development over its near 125-year existence. Dedicated presidents, inspiring faculty, and a variety of students are featured, as well as the campus's Georgian architecture, which immediately signifies Presbyterian College. The long and rich Blue Hose athletic tradition is thoroughly explored and varied aspects of student life-from choir tours to Greek life-are recounted.
