Harrison Hilliard II  


General Business until I transfer and then I would like to get into Engineering

Why did you pick this major?

I chose the business major because I feel like it’s something you’ll always need in the long run. I aspire to be a businessman myself in the future so this is something that is apart of the process to help mold me.

What's your story (Tell us a little about yourself)?

I’m a student that is intrigued to learn new things but at the same time I’m a competitor and I love the sport of basketball which I work very hard at perfecting my craft so that I can soon become a professional after my collegiate career.  

How did you get to PC?

I got to PC through my recruiting process as they were known as one of the best junior colleges in the state and a great school to later transfer to Division 1.

What inspires you?

My faith is what inspires me the most, but also some other things that inspire me are my elders or anyone in a sense that has come before me and paved the way for me to be able to make the most of life.

Any advice to future PC students? 

Time management.
