The Prescott College Community

At Prescott College community is everything

Regardless of what drives you and inspires you, you’ll find a community of supportive peers, mentors, and colleagues at Prescott College. While we all come from different backgrounds and have different experiences, one thing we all have in common is our passion - passion for helping others, passion for the environment, passion for social justice and a passion for a different kind of learning experience.

Diversity at Prescott College

There’s no such thing as a typical Prescott College student, each individual is unique. Quirky? Maybe. Brilliant? Definitely. What unites us is our independent spirit and a desire to improve our communities and our lives.

Students organizations and clubs have been formed by students and include: Queer Student Union, Black Student Union, Mi Familia, Garden Club, Music Club and more. Learn more.

Butte Creek Restoration Council

The Butte Creek Restoration Council (BCRC) was originally formed in the spring of 1996 by three visionary on-campus undergrads and a few dedicated faculty members from Prescott College. In 2012 a new cadre of restoration-minded undergrads and faculty members revived the BCRC around a renewed mission to engage the Prescott College community, our surrounding neighbors, and the larger Prescott community in projects that help restore, enhance, and celebrate Lower Butte Creek as the centerpiece of our expanding campus and a vital part of the Upper Granite Creek Watershed. Learn more.

A weekly gathering centered around soup

Community lunch is a proud tradition at Prescott College. Our community joins together each Wednesday for free soup and bread provided by our very own Crossroads Cafe. It’s a chance to connect over a warm meal and share information about what’s happening at Prescott College.
