  • “What drew me to Keiser was that they were super flexible. I was a new mom, I was a little unsure about going back to school in my late 20s and they really just make it super accommodating and comfortable jumping back into it. The faculty and staff here truly have an open-door policy. Everybody has made it super easy to reach out if there are questions, or a problem or concern. I feel like I can go to anybody for help.”

  • Keiser University Occupational Therapy Assistant Graduate

    Keiser University was, hands down, the perfect place for me to pursue my degree in Occupational Therapy. The smaller class sizes, coupled with the attentiveness and accessibility of the instructors, gave me the most thorough and qualified education possible. Outside of the classroom, the internships offered through Keiser afforded me the opportunity to build rapport within the therapy community and effectively network, which was no doubt the reason I was able to become immediately employed post-graduation despite the challenging job market. Ultimately, while being educated at Keiser, I absolutely fell in love with being a therapist, which is something that will fuel my career to the very end, and I am forever grateful.
