CARMEL, Ind., June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 900 ITT Technical Institute students and graduates recently submitted letters of support commending the education and services they've received from ITT Tech campuses across the country.
Many are filled with personal experiences from students who secured employment with the assistance of ITT Tech's Career Services department, including positions with some of the largest companies across the U.S.
"The overwhelming support from our students confirms that they received a quality education and are taking advantage of the academic and support services our campuses have to offer," said Kevin M. Modany, CEO of ITT Educational Services, Inc. "Despite what we read in the news about career colleges, ITT Tech's non-traditional students are finding value in their education."
Modany said the letters were requested in an outreach effort to solicit personal experiences from current students and recent graduates.
Many have had obstacles like Martha Santibanez in West Palm Beach, Fla., who was out of the learning environment for 13 years. She is now active in campus groups and a nominee for an ambassador leadership program.
Other testimonials highlight the students that ITT Tech serves. Arron Pease, who described his last jobs as being on "a downward path" in low-paying retail and food service, said, "ITT Tech has changed my life in a positive way." Pease chose to pursue a degree in software development.
Tanya L. Kellus, in Springfield, Ill., said her information technology degree from ITT Tech helped her find a job "making more money than when I worked three part-time jobs."
These letters are just a sampling of the feedback received from students.
"ITT Tech students can tell their stories the best," said Modany. "Despite the negatives from politicians and press, we are helping people better their lives as they pursue a quality education."
Since 1969, ITT Tech has educated over 1 million students. Approximately 12,000 employers have hired ITT Tech graduates in the past two years.
