"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 field. 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."

"The Biotechnology program at St. Lawrence College introduced me to a wide range of courses; from environmental chemistry to genetics, there was something of interest for everyone! However, what really impressed me was the faculty. All of the professors had extensive background in what they taught, and many of them split their time between teaching and doing current research in their field. They were up-to-date with all the latest techniques and equipment, and always had time for any student who had a question, or just wanted to talk. They helped make my time in the Biotechnology program a rewarding and enjoyable experience."
