After 15 years dreaming of going back to school, Roger took the leap and applied to Alfred State.
Although he holds a degree in forestry, the college’s four-year, ABET accredited program in surveying and geomatics engineering technology was a better fit for his career aspirations.
“The college has the only four-year ABET accredited program, and it has affordable tuition and the highest quality instruction. I was really pleased with the product, and at the end of the day, if you’ve got something good and you’re offering it at a good price, it’s good for you and for everyone.”
Today, he is a senior engineering technician at a local county department of public works and he’s never regretted his decision. “It’s tough. It’s a sacrifice. I’ve got a wife and two kids at home, but the faculty have been extremely supportive. I’m thankful to have a great education and a great job.”
