Palmer’s San Jose and Port Orange campuses hold prospective student events
San Jose Campus
The San Jose Campus recently hosted PalmerPalooza 2014, its annual summertime recruitment event, which brought nearly 100 prospective students in for an informative and exciting event-filled weekend.
In addition to California, PalmerPalooza guests ventured from states, including Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Many other prospective students journeyed a bit further to attend PalmerPalooza 2014, traveling from Canada, France and Puerto Rico.
PalmerPalooza 2014 kicked-off Friday evening with Casino Night, hosted by the Admissions and Student Services departments, and officers of the Associated Student Government.
The Saturday portion of the program continued with a special presentation by Bill Meeker, D.C., San Jose Campus president, about career opportunities for chiropractic doctors, and the many ways that Palmer College continues to advance the chiropractic profession.
Senior Director of Admissions Recruitment Julie Behn discussed the value of a Palmer education, followed by a summary of Palmer financial aid services by Brenda Alvarez, Financial Aid Department manager.
Guests then toured the campus and took part in interactive classroom sessions and clinical demonstrations presented by members of the San Jose Campus faculty, including: Andrew Allen, D.C.; Makani Lew, D.C.; Thomas Souza, D.C., DACBSP; Susan St. Claire, D.C.; Randy Waters, D.C.; and Morgan Young, D.C.
The highlight of the day was a special panel presentation featuring practice perspectives and reflections on their experiences as students from San Jose Campus alumni. This year’s panel included: Molica Anderson, D.C. (’13); Marc Grow, D.C. (’12); Daniel Lord, D.C. (’09); Sherry McAllister, D.C. (’96).
“PalmerPalooza is one of our biggest recruitment events of the year,” said Ms. Behn.
“PalmerPalooza is an event that, from start to finish, provides each guest with a great experience, and provides the faculty, staff, student and alumni participants with a great sense of Palmer pride,” said Bill Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., San Jose Campus president.
Port Orange Campus
On Saturday, July 19, nearly 150 students, parents and children were welcomed to the Port Orange Campus by President Peter Martin, D.C.; Dean of Academic Affairs Donald Gran, D.C.; and Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Tom Stempek.
The group toured both the campus and clinic, participated in faculty presentations and gained valuable information about Student Services, Admissions as well as the greater Daytona Beach area.
