My overall experience at Carrignton College so far is simply, amazing! Whatever i need help with,the intructors, the student resource manager, and the staff are there for me. It doesn't matter what problem you may have, either if it's little or big, they help you solve it. I wouldn't want to go to another school after attending this one and this is barely my 2nd week. I've never thought about joining student council and now that i'm in it, i love it. This school not only reaches out and helps their students but the community as well.

My experience with Carrington College so far is been one of the best in my life. I never like school growing up. But Carrington College has change my perspective on school I wake up every morning and the only thing I can think about is how much I'm enjoying School. My instructor in the veterinarian assistant class is by far my favorite teacher I've ever had she is helpful she not only gives her time at school to help me but her own personal time if I'm having a problem in a certain subject or a theory or discussion topic. Administration staff are very engaging with the student body they are so encouraging. Mentioning every single student by name every day if they see them in the hallway they ask how are you doing and I actually enjoy what I'm going to school for it's a passionate they're making me ready to dedicate my life to and it's all because my love for animals push me towards Carrington College's direction. Now they are a big reason why I'm gonna be able to better my life. When I complete the classes that I'm in right now I plan on moving to a different city or state just so I could attend the associates degree in veterinarian technician class just so I can stay with the school that's how much they've encourage me and inspired me to succeed and do good in school. The Student Success Center at Carrington College is a big helpful tool in ensuring the success in academics and life as well as the well-being of the students they offer tutoring, counseling, help with finding apartments, help getting a job, & even help with our personal problems and issues if they can. My life has changed for the better. Carrington College is the main reason why I feel confident, encouraged, happy, and comfortable that I'll be a success in life instead of ending back in a legal problem. Or a failure like I felt I was. Now it's a complete 360. And I have a 3.15 GPA.

Well with my program I get to go on a externship for the last six weeks of class. By going to an pre approved or by choice animal care center, pet clinic, veterinarian hospital, etc. And gaining more hands on experience and still being graded on the whole externship. Most of the externship at my school end as a huge job/employment opportunity for us. The hire rate for externs is like 68%. The quality of our career center/Servicece on campus are real good. It's called the Student Success Center and the teachers, counsels, and mentors are the most helpful and encouraging people I've ever met in any school I've visited they are willing to go out of there way just to help with what ever your needs are.
