Graduated with honors from Piedmont technical college in December 2016. All of my credits transferred from PTC to lander university and I started as a junior in Lander university. I own PTC a lot because it has given me hope for a better future and made me realize that if I set my mind to a goal I can accomplish anything I desire. As of right now I'm heading for my bachelors and then will concentrate on getting my master's.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
