"I would not hesitate to recommend STC to someone seeking further education!" Joe Boyer, graduate.

"I felt the teachers and staff at STC taught us the most valuable basic skills to go out into the job market and seek a drafting position."  David Gabert, graduate.

"It's interesting to know that the training at STC is such that even after more than 10 years of graduation, and not being in my field of study, one could easily get back into the career field and be successful at it.  After graduating LTC in 1994 I was unsuccessful in landing a job in the design/drafting field.  In 1997 I then started to pursue a bachelor’s degree in architecture at a state university.  At the end of my 2nd year at the university I realized it was just not for me.  I then made a huge career risk & switch into broadcasting.  In 2003, three years after my switch into broadcasting, I was contacted by a local architect that I had met shortly after graduating LTC, which I also had light contact with through one of the radio stations I was working with.  He wanted to know if I was interested in doing some part time freelance CAD work for him.  Long story short, within 14 months I was working full time for the architect as an architectural designer.  My co-worker in the office was impressed that I was able to get back into the CAD field and was able to recall much of my CAD training which I received while at STC (back then, just "Linn Tech.") So, thank you Linn Tech!”  Sean Major, 1994 Alumni
