What It’s Like Being a Broadview University Vet Tech Student
Published on June 14, 2013 by Peter Tomala
Hi, I’m Chanin Malley and I’m in the veterinary technician program at Broadview University-West Jordan. When I was asked to write a blog describing what life is like for a student, the first thought that popped into my mind was: fun! Of course after that, it was: what should I write about? The good and the bad times, or only focus on the good times so people will like this blog more?
But as I thought about it, I realized that my readers may already know some of the hardships that come with being a Broadview student. For example, [there are times] when you wait until the last minute to do a really big packet that you received last week.
You know you should have done it right away but you waited, and now it’s due tomorrow morning. Everyone in the class has finished this stupid packet and you think to yourself, “I am never doing that again,” only to realize that you say that to yourself a whole lot.
If I had to think of a favorite thing that I get to experience as a student at Broadview that other students don’t get to experience, it would be the family-like closeness that everyone has. It’s going out to eat after doing a big test in class and meeting outside of class and studying together as a group. I feel that at Broadview University, the classes I take are classes that the people inside of them carry a lot of the same views that I do because we have the same goals.
I wonder if it’s like that in other programs. Do they also feel the same closeness we in the vet tech building do? I wonder if the closeness our campus in West Jordan has is because of our small class sizes. This not only seems to be beneficial while learning, but socially too. As a whole, being a Broadview University student is something I enjoy because not only do I get to meet fun people, but I get to learn too. I get to learn how to be the best in my future career.
Until next time…
