"I graduated from UNK in 2000. I am now the program director of the Mary Lanning Healthcare School of Radiologic Technology in Hastings, NE. I am happy that I chose UNK 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. I enjoyed the time I had on UNK campus. The instructors and professors are knowledgeable and approachable without being intimidating and the campus is just the right size."
