Student Testimonials 

"My position at the WET Center was my first real experience in my field, and it will definitely pave the way for my future endeavors. The WET Center took a chance on me when I had no prior relevant work experience, and I will always be grateful as I was given the chance to work with such kind, dedicated, and talented individuals for an organization that does some truly amazing and unique work." - Tiffany Modino, Fresno State Student
