Veterinary Technology Graduate
"I chose to enroll at Stautzenberger College because of the professionalism of the staff from the moment I made the first phone call thru the intake and tour, they answered all of my questions fully.
What I liked the most about Stautzenberger is difficult to pin point. First and foremost are the instructors, they want you to succeed and if you are in need of any extra help, they MAKE the time to meet with you and help you. The entire staff showed that they cared about your success. I felt as if the instructors pushed hard enough without making the student feel incompetent, they make you think about the why, the how and the what? The instructors were REAL people, they had happy and sad stories, they made sure you understood that the profession you were studying for was difficult, but also extremely rewarding. There was no sugar coating reality.
I have gained self-assurance, knowing that I worked hard and achieved what I set out to do; work with animals. I have gained I believe, long lasting relationships with people who have similar passions that I have. I have gained a future that I can expand however I choose, whether I want to specialize or stay where I am at, as long as I have a love for animals I will always be needed somewhere.
As far as recommendations go, Stautzenberger gets a high recommendation. My success equals your success. If you have questions, you can call or go into the campus and someone WILL help you. I have done that personally on a few occasions. The career placement help was phenomenal. The staff spent hours with me helping me with resumes and mock interviews and constructive feedback, not only from them but from the prospective employers we interviewed with.
Overall, the college has a relaxing environment with plenty of resources available and top notch instructors. If, as a student enrolled at Stautzenberger, you are committed to working hard and doing your best, the staff will work with you if you need accommodations. I do not believe at another facility I would have received such individual attention that I received there. I would love to see former students afforded an opportunity to come and talk with new students about what they really should expect with their choice of a career as an RVT. "
