“I chose 体育菠菜大平台 for my undergraduate education as it provided a high level of education and preparation for radiography school. I was accepted to multiple schools and I truly feel that my courses and the help from my advisor, Peggy Abels, had an impact on that outcome. The instructors and professors are knowledgeable and approachable and the campus is just the right size. I am now the program director of the Mary Lanning Healthcare School of Radiologic Technology in Hastings, NE.”
