Carley, what do you like best about the Veterinary Technology Diploma?

"Many aspects of the program are attractive; from small class sizes to extensive applied and practical learning. Ridgetown has many opportunities to learn about large animals (dairy cows, beef cows, sheep, swine, and horses) and they have great dog and cat colonies too. It can be an intense learning environment and it challenges me to meet my personal academic goals."
