    Testimonials

    It is my sincere pleasure to write this letter attesting to the excellence of the Biotechnology program offered at St. Lawrence College. I have accepted placement students from this program in my lab for the past three years, and I continue to be impressed with the quality of the trainees. It is clear that they are acquiring key skills and are being well prepared for work in the biotechnology filed. My experience with the College has been great. In fact, my current laboratory technician is a graduate of this program. I would definitely recommend the St. Lawrence College Biotechnology program for anyone who is interested in pursuing a technical career in this field.
