Exam and Placement Rates


Transferring to Roosevelt University was one of the best experiences I have had in my long path to my career as an X-ray technologist. All of the science professors I have had have been very approachable and willing to take extra time to help me understand concepts. My advisor, Dr. Wentz-Hunter, has been more than helpful on guiding me, keeping me on track, and pointing me to the proper resources that the University has when I come to her with an issue that is far, far beyond her scope.
