Meet Lucy Williams, a veterinary technology major from Derry, New Hampshire, who knows that veterinary nurses play a significant role in animal care and well being.

COLSA: What has made UNH the right fit for you?

Lucy Williams: It offered the program I wanted to get into, along with the animals and a PAWS clinic right on campus.

COLSA: Why did you choose your major?

Williams: I chose veterinary technology because animals have always been a huge part of my life. I always wanted to get into a career to help care for animals and save their lives.

COLSA: Any advice for students interested in your major?

Williams: Become a certified veterinary technician and continue working at Deerfield Veterinary Clinic!

COLSA: How is UNH preparing you to achieve your goals?

Williams: At UNH I am gaining the knowledge and hands-on experience I need to be successful, and I'm receiving professional guidance every step of the way.

COLSA: What do you love most about UNH?
