I'm going to give PTC five stars because I've had a stellar experience here over the past several years. With the addition of the bachelor's program, the school has enabled me to pursue opportunities I'd otherwise not have from within my current company. I admit, they're student-body is made up of some questionable characters which is pretty evident by reading the majority of these other reviews (absolutely terrible grammar from kids that barely made it through high school.... it's the "We accept EVERYONE" situation), but otherwise, this place has come a long way and I can honestly say, with their regional accreditation, I'm proud to have earned both my associate's and bachelor's degrees from PTC!

The teachers and staff are all easy going. Just ask! My instructors listen, offer advice, push me to think. Courses are challenging, but help is always available. I moved here and the apartments are super nice. Campus is nice and quiet, until activities kick in. The malls, stores are all nearby. Tons of restaurants and shopping. Met really nice friends here too. It's private, feels safe and someone is always around to help.
Fantastic location, fantastic programs, fantastic career placement services, fantastic experience. You get out what you put in. I went to one of the state's top public schools and the academic classes were a breeze. This is a trade school though, so your classes mainly focus on your career with a hands-on approach. If you aren't serious about your career, this is not the school for you.

Off-campus/commuting students (I found) had an easier time focusing on their studies since they were not a part of the on-campus drama/scene, but that also means missing a ton of student life events.

Here, you will find life-long friendships with your peers and life-long connection with your professors. Fantastic school. I would go back if I could.
