Activities

Radiologic Technology Week

Radiologic Technology Week is held in the first full week of November every year to commemorate the magnificent discovery of the X-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on November 8, 1895.  Since 1991, the college has celebrated this annual momentous event in order to honor the achievements of radiologic technologists and the profession itself.

Pinning Ceremony

The pinning ceremony is the culmination of the initial journey to the professional radiologic technology education held in December of each year. At this special ceremony, second year radiologic technology students wear their prescribed white uniform, radiologic technology pin and the name plate with the radiologic technology emblem that clearly distinguish them from all other health care professionals. 

Near the end of the formal procedure they will light the candle of wisdom which will always shine brightly as a symbol of care and devotion to the practice of radiologic technology. They will take a pledge of loyalty by reciting the “RT CREDO”.

The ceremony is also dedicated to family members who helped them along their educational journey, to a close friend, and to the spiritual power that guided them in this endeavor.

Graduation

The College of Radiologic Technology adopts the general regulations of graduation requirements as stated in the College Student Handbook, 2008 Edition
