Megan Coyne

“I am a “non-traditional” student who came to Vermont Tech after already having a Bachelor’s degree, as well as completion of license for a massage therapy program. I have experienced both very large lecture hall classes, as well as small class sizes over the years. The transition to Vermont Tech was relatively easy; I appreciate the smaller class sizes and community feel we have here at Vermont Tech.”

Megan moved from Connecticut to Vermont to start a new career and chapter in her life. “Vermont Tech was my top choice for a variety of reasons. From the small class settings, successful job placement rates, hands-on training, and location; I knew that Vermont Tech was the right school for me.”

“I was drawn to Radiologic Science for the technical aspects, as well as for patient care. I knew I wanted a career that would allow me to provide empathetic and compassionate care to patients. I have always wanted to work in the healthcare field, and while I initially applied for nursing, I made the switch to Radiologic Science and I am so happy that I did! I truly feel that this field is the best fit for me.”

“Our class sizes are small which has allowed us as students to all get to know and support each other through the program process. Our classes are challenging and rigorous at times, but well worth all the effort and hard work we put in to them. Professor Weeden, who is also our program director, has been very supportive and there for us every step of the way.”

“Vermont Tech Student Activities has been a very helpful and enjoyable part of my time at Vermont Tech, especially during stressful finals week.”

“I am hoping to become a registered Radiologic Technologist after passing my boards and to work in a hospital setting. I also have an interest in cross-training in CT or MRI later on in my career.”

Megan currently works part-time while in school. “When I am not studying or doing school work, I enjoy hiking with friends, reading, going to the beach, seeing live music, and hanging out with my husband and two cats.”

“I would say to incoming students and those considering my major to study hard, make sure you attend all of your classes, and also to find time for self-care. Work/school-life balance can be tricky, and the earlier you find a routine that works for you, the better. Take care of yourself, do not be too hard on yourself, and do the best you can! All of your efforts will pay off in the end.”
