Anthony Zinser graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architectural Technology from Ranken Technical College in 2015. He describes his collegiate life with pride, “Ranken drove me in pursuit of my career and education. I always had a good work ethic before I started school at Ranken, but Ranken reinforced that attribute.” He recalls, “Some of my favorite memories of my time spent on campus are staying up late with my classmates in the architecture studio working on projects and our models.” Anthony was honored to serve as the Vice President of Phi Theta Kappa.

Anthony interned for Hilbolt Curtainwall Incorporated, a nonresidential building construction company in St. Louis, for a semester and then joined them full time after completing his degree. He worked for them about five years. He is currently a BIM (building information modeling) Design Technician at Archimages, Inc. Jim Huber, Principal at Archimages, tells us “Anthony Zinser has been a great addition to our team.”

Missy Borchardt, former Architecture Department Chair and instructor, commented “Anthony always came to class with a good attitude and ready to learn. He would take on additional projects that would stretch his ability.” David Graf, another Architecture instructor, tells us “Anthony was a good student. He was enthusiastic about architecture and always got along well with his fellow classmates.”

Anthony’s great grandfather, John Joseph Bryne, attended Ranken’s plumbing program in 1957.
