    I am currently a transfer freshman studying Emergency Medicine at PCT. My experience has been very positive. I live in an apartment close to campus. Being at PCT truly is a great College because they offer so many different majors for real world jobs. I am studying to become a paramedic, but I know students who are becoming mechanics, construction management, nursing, radiology, and many more. This school offers so much!

    This school offers so many opportunities for its students and provides them with a welcoming environment. The campus is beautiful, the professors are wonderful and care about their students. Freshman especially are surrounded in a safe environment to learn and grow away from home. The only downside is how tough the academic programs are to stay in. A lot is expected from the students from the get go.
    Pennsylvania College of Technology is a very clean campus that is filled with an active student life. The professors are great - they truly want to see you succeed in school, and in your desired job. There are many amazing options when it comes to studying. The college offers and amazingly helpful tutoring center, writing center, and open labs. These are all available to students, in hopes of success in a course.
