President's Message

Welcome to Peninsula College!

As you explore our student-friendly website, you’ll discover a very special place, a college that puts you―the student―front and center. You can earn a baccalaureate degree, associate degrees that will prepare you for transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and professional technical degrees and certificates designed for immediate entry into the world of work.

Students choose PC because they know they can get an excellent education at a fraction of the cost they would pay at other colleges and universities. They also know our location offers unparalleled opportunities to participate in studies and research projects that take them outside the classroom and into a unique natural environment that includes a World Heritage National Park, snowcapped mountains, rainforests, ocean beaches and old-growth forests.

Students are also drawn by our growing international program, which provides opportunities to study in other countries and to get to know international students in and outside the classroom. Additionally, they can study right here on campus with scholars from other countries, and are able to meet and take courses with visiting Fulbright Scholars.

Leadership opportunities also abound. Many students quickly become involved with the Associated Student Council and various clubs, and can even choose to become Student Ambassadors.

When you come to Peninsula College, I urge you to get out, get involved and get a real taste of what we have to offer. What you learn during your time here will prepare you to enter the world and help to change it for the better.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to a very special place.

Dr. Luke Robins
