33. Comments
I really enjoyed my experience at Western Technical College. I was able to get a great degree in an
occupation I will enjoy. I liked how I was able to get in and out of college in just three years and limit the
amount I had to spend on my schooling. I was able to get a job right and enter the work force right away.
