Pride. Respect. Class. Character. The Wildcat Way.

Pride. Respect. Class. Character.  The Wildcat Way. These are the principles upon which Pearl River Community College was built. Over the past year, the Wildcat Way thread has continued to weave itself throughout the culture of the institution. While many of its students face insurmountable challenges in order to make it to one of its three locations for the first day of classes, they continue not only to survive but thrive. Faculty and staff have embodied the Wildcat Way by implementing it in their instruction and embracing student’s challenges like never before.
