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.

this technical college is the best technical college in south carolina, there was a problem with the workers at the edgefield campus, they lost my transcripts, and they tried to cancel my advisement appointment so they could meet their boyfriend in the parking lot, the students at the edgefield campus were rude, and trashy, they are not going to stop me from going there, the classes that you have to take are wonderful, the instructional methods are excellent
