Connie Laquitara, ’05

“Pursue your passion. It may land you your dream job.”

Connie, who majored in veterinary technology, was hired right out of college by Genesee Valley Equine Clinic in Rochester, and works almost exclusively with horses.

“When I graduated from Alfred State, I discovered that what I learned was really what I needed to know. The vet tech program at Alfred State gave me the opportunity to work with large animals—horses, cows, pigs, and sheep. Other colleges I considered didn’t offer large animal training. This proved invaluable for landing a job. In fact, it equipped me for my dream job.”
