Most of my teachers worked within the fieldDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Most of my teachers worked within the field and were knowledgeable. The cafeteria was also pretty good; there was always a variety of foods to choose from. Housing was horrendously deplorable; the rooms were not cleaned prior to move in (as was claimed), there was no enforced curfew (as was claimed), room checks weren't often enough, and fire drills were performed at random hours (after midnight sometimes). Students from housing would be up literally all hours of the night, playing guitar, skateboarding, etc. I had to call security because a few people were outside my building skateboarding on the sidewalk until after 4 am. If you want to attend PTC, avoid their housing and find an apartment or commute. PTC's housing is pathetic and extremely overpriced.
