I chose this program because I want to pursue a career in the veterinary field, and I heard this was an amazing program to get into. I love the family-ness of this program. We always work together. I want to go to the University of Tennessee to be a veterinarian technician, and this program is allowing me to experience things early on before I enter the field.
