I had a wonderful experience in the OTA program at Western. As a result of this program, I know that I have
grown immensely both personally and professionally.
It would be extremely helpful to add the point of service documentation article as well as added materials to
provide students with skills for this very important aspect of the fieldwork experience.
Great program that helped mold me in to a better person and professional and helped me become passionate
about the OT field.
I had a great experience at Western Technical College and would recommend this Technical College to others
Thank you for the great education!
Thank you for a wonderful education
Very great experience
Students at the health sciences building feel disconnected from the main campus.
I wish I would have done this instead of my first degree!! I loved it here.
XXXXX and XXXXX have formed us all as students and supported us throughout our experience here at Western. If
it weren't for them, I would not have done as well in school that I did.
