"My education has been truly well-rounded. I was unsure of what I wanted to do before switching to Radiologic Technology, so I took a plethora of classes to see where my interests lie. The Health Sciences Department has been one of the greatest support services to me since changing my major. My advising processes have run flawlessly. I feel thoroughly prepared for the next stage in my life."
