    Testimonials

    In 2016, I graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program at St. Lawrence College. There were a vast amount of classes offered as a part of the program, ranging from communication skills, exotic care, and laboratory practices, which expanded our knowledge of the field, allowing a variety of career choices. The small class sizes were very useful in hands-on scenarios, and when extra help was required. Immediately following the completion of the program, I had the opportunity to complete my placement at a local mixed practice animal hospital. This placement transitioned into my current position. I am working full-time as a VA in a busy practice- the first step on my career path. With the guidance and supportive measures received by the professors, as well as the skills gained while attending SLC, I have found a career I am truly passionate about.
