Keiser University Success Stories

I also had my associate degree in Radiology from Keiser University. The reason why I chose Keiser University for my bachelor’s degree is the scheduling system. I like the idea of having one class at a time every month. It also suits mothers like me who have to pick up their kids after school. I am proud to be a student of Keiser University.”

Zareen K., BS in Health Science Student

Keiser University gave me a great education specializing in Radiologic Technology. The teachers were extremely knowledgeable and were always willing to take extra time to explain if [I ever] had trouble with a subject…The way the clinical rotations are set up are great because it really gave me the opportunity to learn what it means to be an X-ray tech before I actually became one.”

Jara M., Radiologic Technology Graduate

Recently, I had the exciting task of hiring a new employee. I was looking for specific skills and was concerned about being able to locate a qualified individual. At Keiser University, I found a place where I could turn for help in this process. Keiser University has been an invaluable source of knowledgeable candidates for my employee search.”
