    I like the school and all. but everybody is doing something. I don't really have friends. I am pretty much by myself, but then again I am not a bubbly person that just go up to people. Other than that PSC is a enjoyable place.

    The Lakeland campus for PSC hosts a varied age range of students; however the majority of students are high school juniors and seniors, college freshman and soon-to-be program graduates. Recent remodeling and additions to the campus buildings have improved the campus facilities. This campus is also relatively small, keeping all buildings within walking distance. The grounds are well maintained as well as the interiors of all facilities. Tutors are included in your tuition, so you do not pay extra out-of-pocket expenses to utilize their services. The student activities board is very active and the athletic department is ranked nationally.
