“I can honestly say that PTM was one of the better decisions I have ever made. Not only was my college experience one that was unforgettable, but it set me up for success in life. It allowed me to make life-long friends in college and hold internships where I had amazing experiences all over the country. After college though is where my degree truly started to shine. It has allowed me a fantastic job doing what I love and working for people who share my passion. It may be a cliche, but the saying “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life” couldn’t be more true.”
