4/8/20 Update on Parking Lot WiFi Locations

Due to the stay-in-place order, Piedmont Community College is not able to offer computer labs for students without internet access. To help combat this issue, we've worked with the community to identify locations with GUEST access in business and church parking lots. In addition, PCC has added two hot spot locations on the Person County Campus and one hot spot location on the Caswell County Campus. As new locations are identified, they will be added to the list.
