At PMC, what students do outside of the classroom is just as important as what goes on inside the classroom. Co-curricular activities are encouraged and are considered a vital part of each student’s education and leadership development. Opportunities to participate in community service, student organizations, intercollegiate athletics, performing arts, and recreational activities are widely available to Pine Manor students and the college’s proximity to Boston greatly enhances the student experience.
Students participate in decision making at Pine Manor College through the Student Government Association. Student representatives sit on the Curriculum Committee, Library Committee, Speakers and Programs Committee, and the Academic Ethics Council.
Athletics play an important role at Pine Manor College, providing students opportunity to practice inclusive leadership and social responsibility. Intercollegiate sports include cross country, soccer, and volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter, and softball in the spring. PMC competes against other NCAA Division III schools and is a member of the Great South Athletic Conference of women’s colleges. All students can participate in coed intramural sports on campus throughout the year. PMC’s varsity teams are the Gators.
Athletic facilities at PMC include a new outdoor tennis complex with six courts, softball and soccer fields, a cross country trail, two platform tennis courts, and a multi-purpose gymnasium with courts for indoor sports, a fitness room, a dance studio, and a softball batting cage.
