Everyone is so nice at Central Penn College. They helped me with any questions I had with applying for there PTA program. They responded to every email or phone call promptly. Great school, great professors, great investment.
At Central Penn, the school offers several different unique aspects, but the most important thing to me is the interaction between students and faculty. Professors are great and they are willing to lend a hand and help students when they are struggling. Open office hours are helpful because it gives us a chance to talk to professors outside of the classroom to get help with whatever we may need.
