    Testimonials

    I decided to enroll at St. Lawrence College because of the small class size, and high employment rate after graduation, and from my first day, I found welcoming classmates, engaged faculty, and a built-in community in the Office Administration program.  The College helped me by being my home away from home.  I was new to the Kingston area, and being at the College made me feel safe, with plenty of activities and studying to do.  I was able to sweat it out at the gym, study in the library, and even have a coffee in the Student Association lounge.  I eventually got a part-time bursary job as an Office Assistant working for various school offices within the College, which provided me with great hands on experience.  I was also able to obtain work experience through the program’s 2-week placements of our choice, which occurred at three separate times throughout my school year, where I was able to discover what I wanted to do with my career once I graduated.  I completed the Dual Office Administration course resulting in two diplomas upon graduation, one in Medical and one in Legal.  I found the experience to be life changing and I was very proud of what I had accomplished in such a short amount of time.  I wasn’t sure of which administrative field I wanted to go into, so by doing the dual program both within the 8 month period, I was able to see which field I liked best. 

    The Office Administration program provides its students with a great support system, continuous learning, and hands on experience with the most up-to-date technology and office software.  I was more ready than ever to enter into the workforce.  My placement opportunity allowed me to get a foot in the door and I was able to obtain full-time employment even before my official graduation ceremony.  I now work at one of Kingston’s largest law firms, with a solid foundation of administrative skills, and I can definitely say that the College made me “career-ready”.
