Create Lifelong Friendships

Park Place students care for each other. After a full day of classes, they relax together with a swim in our pool and enjoy a bite at our outdoor grills. They re-center themselves with a group yoga session. They show their Carolina pride in our football, basketball, and baseball watch parties in our movie theater. They take a short walk to attend some of our campus' best traditions, like Tiger Burn, held right down the street. The memories they share in Park Place build relationships with their peers that last a lifetime.
