    Testimonials

    "Hi, my name is James Flanders and I graduated from the Civil Engineering Technologist(CET) program at St. Lawrence College in 2014. In May 2011 I got laid off from my job and wanted to better my life and the life of my family. Out of all of the schools that offered the CET program SLC stood out to me. I still remember going to the March Open House and meeting the professors. The genuine interest and passion they showed in the program and the success of the students blew me away. Having been out of school for more than five years I was nervous coming back, but there was never once an occasion where I didn’t feel welcomed and valued as a participant to any class discussion or program event. The CET program is one of the most socially active programs at the college, and these networking opportunities between the program years, is extremely beneficial. Now as a full time employee working in industry, I have had the opportunity to work with Summer Students who I knew personally from these events. Going back to school after being laid off was a challenge, but the faculty, and the staff at St. Lawrence made it a fantastic experience. I would recommend this program and this school to anyone."
