Plaza Stories

David “I chose to attend Plaza College because my aunt graduated from Plaza a few years ago and she always told me about how great the school was. To me, being a Plaza student means that I know I have to work hard towards what I want to achieve, and with the help of the professors and staff, I will be able to reach my goals.”
