John Sanders, PWSC student

"I first heard about PWSC from the principal of a small bush school that I graduated from. Her daughter Tiffany had attended PWSC and loved the personal attention that she got from the professors, as well as the sense of community on campus. At the time, I was looking into a lot of different colleges, but I ended up choosing PWSC because the have one of the lowest tuition rates in the state and offered scholarships that made it possible for me to attend at a very low cost. Now that I'm here, I know that Tiffany wasn't exaggerating at all." - John Sanders, Slana, Alaska
