You get your hands-on applied technology education at, at the same, you know, you have your lecture portion of classes. [ Music ] >> The hands-on experience is just, it's great. It's awesome being able to learn. >> You get more lab time to actually use what you've learned in the lectures. >> Hands-on experience is completely irreplaceable. It makes everything in the classroom a little bit more realistic and kind of come alive. >> When you actually get the component in your hand, and you physically see how it operates or it, you know, does what it's supposed to do, that usually draws it all together and brings it home. >> One thing that I really love about the college is the hands-on experience that we get. So theory is important, but if you don't practice, you're not really going to learn a lot. >> Your, your classes have been transformed from lecture in the classroom to working, and, and it's not, it's not lecture anymore. [ Music ] >> I think that's one thing that's appealing about Penn College as a whole is that you're going to be learning something, going to school for something that you're going to be able to use. >> Today, we performed service on a backup, emergency backup generator. >> Working on real patients is really a joy. We do all kinds of assessments and x-rays, and then really, really meticulous cleaning and polishing with fluoride. >> The jobs we do here in the lab are extremely real world.

The stuff we do to them is, is exactly the same as you would do in a dealership. >> It is an amazing feeling to know that you're helping a client get closer to their goals and seeing changes in their body and health and knowing that you helped them achieve that. >> This lab here is amazing. The technology and the ability to practice in here in the lab, and I've learned such an incredible amount. After the past four years, I sit down and have conversations with people, and I think, wow, four years ago [laughs] I would not have understood a thing I just said. [ Music ] >> I would tell people to come to Penn College because of the level of attention that professors show the students. >> They're small classes so you really get to know your classmates, and you get a lot of one-on-one instruction from your instructors. The teachers are always here to help you with anything you need. >> They care about you. They, I, I know a lot of the professors well enough. They ask about, you know, my life outside of school, my life in school. They care how things are going with the semester. They want to see you do well. >> They go out of their way for you. They're, they're very patient. They are always willing to answer an e-mail or a lot of them even give you their cell phone numbers. You know, it's, like, hey, if, if, if you have, like, a really urgent problem or a question or something like that, just call me. Call me at home. >> They'll assist you outside of class about anything. It doesn't even have to be class related. [ Music ] >> It's, it's, yeah, it's fair to say that my Penn College degree is already working for me. >> It, it's exceeded my higher expectations. It, it feels really great to have a path, like a noble path that I'm going to go this direction in life instead of wondering. >> Grateful is an understatement for how I will feel and how I do feel about my education here at Penn College. Years down the road I will undoubtedly look back and recognize, I think probably better than I do now, how significant my time here has been. >> I'm excited that I'm going to have a job upon graduation.

And I, I couldn't have, I couldn't have picked a better place to go. [ Music ] >> All that hard work was worth it. All the blood, sweat, and tears was worth it, and I'll have great memories, and it's a great place to go. [laughs] [ Music ] [ Silence ]
