Kyle - 06/01/2021

I visited Pennsylvania College of Technology in November 2020 as it is my first choice college. I loved the fact that it is a school that's not too big and not too small. It is an excellent school that has a great Welding program which is what I'm interested in and will be majoring in. My high school guidance counselor recommended the school as she knew what I was interested in. She was right. When I visited I got a personal tour and could not have agreed more. When I call my counselor or have a question, I get a response right away. The school has a reputation for their graduating students obtaining employment in their chosen area of study by the time they are in their junior year of college. I look forward to starting my college years at Penn Tech.

The college is fun and there is usually something to do off campus like hiking. no pets in dorms like most campuses. this college is more hands on so you will understand things better since the lessons are physical not theoretical. overall 4 out of 5 stars

Brandon

I am really happy that I decided to attend this institution. The main goal of this College is to ensure that each and every student gets the most out of their experience at Penn College. It is a very welcoming but also competitive environment which helps every student stay on top of their game. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that would inquire.

My first year at Penn College has been absolutely amazing. The overall friendliness and faculty is so nice. There isn't one thing I would want to change about the school. My experience being a freshman has been a very good one. I would most definitely recommend this school to anyone.
