Paine college for me so far has been a pretty good experience. in school juggling school with athletics can be pretty hard for someone alone but lucky for me Paine college has a phenomenal support cast and strives to push you and keep you going while assuring that all the work that you put in now will pay off in the future.
Being a transfer student at Paine, was the best option for me! I don't live on campus, but the school works hard to make sure all students are able to get the campus life experience!
