I think the school gives people hope, because they dream of working in their preferred field of study. I chose surgical technology because it was interesting. Because of this school I love surgical technology, most of my colleagues do too, they are excited about working in the operating room, exploring the opportunities this program have shed light on for them. They can look forward to a career that can support them and their families, gives them knowledge that separates them from the general population, and a calling. What I loved most of all was the teachings of my first instructor in the first level, it inspired me to become a student again (because i used to be a slacker), but I was inspired to think that i can become a doctor. May sound a tad extreme but it was the idea that it sparked the an idea and imagination, this is want makes dreams and dream come true. I remember we would have time races of who can set up and finish their surgeries the fastest with the least amount errors, we'd call them surgical Olympics. For any prospective students that is interested, maybe interested or curious about surgical technology, my biggest tip is RESEARCH! Learn what you're getting yourself into, learn about the opportunities, and decide whether this is the right choice for you.
