Student Stories

A selfie of a woman with long auburn hair smiling at the camera.

“I was drawn to radiologic science for the technical aspects, as well as for patient care. I knew I wanted a career that would allow me to provide empathetic and compassionate care to patients. While I initially applied for nursing, I made the switch to radiologic science and I am so happy that I did! I truly feel that this field is the best fit for me.”

“I knew before I even started looking I did not want to be just a face in an auditorium. I wanted to know my professors, and I wanted my professors to know me. The success rates and ROI of the school are great. ”
