Pine Manor College
Pine Manor College (PMC) is a private, liberal arts college located in Chestnut Hill, a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. It was founded in 1911 and currently serves almost 500 students, 75% of whom live on the 60-acre (240,000ï¿½m2) campus.
Pine Manor College, originally Pine Manor Junior College, was part of the Dana Hall School in Wellesley center. In 1965 it moved to a 78-acre (320,000 m2) estate in Chestnut Hill. The estate, then known as Roughwood, was the residence of Ernest B. Dane. E.B. Dane was president of the Brookline Savings and Trust. Many of the school's buildings are original to the estate and have been renovated to accommodate the college. The women's college was founded in 1911, at a time when even wealthy women were generally denied access to higher education, except at women-only institutions.
Pine Manor College educates and empowers a diverse student body to become accomplished, reflective, and confident leaders ï¿½ one student at a time.
