"As a 1995 graduate of Penn College, I have had the opportunity of experiencing the challenging journey that lies ahead of every Penn College Radiography student. I believe the strength of the program is its incorporation of clinical experience simultaneously with classroom instruction throughout the entire two years. This disciplined structure is what ultimately prepares the students for their career as a Radiographer."

"It is amazing the amount of growth that both the college and the field of Radiography has undergone since I graduated. And with those changes come many opportunities for current and future Radiographers. It is a privilege to be a part of that growth; learning and teaching the most up to date technology. Our students are given the opportunity to work with new technology at their clinical sites and our new lab at the college."
