We have such a strong community here at Palmer’s West Campus, with so many different events to be a part of. Just the past three weeks have been packed with adventure and fun social events.
The first week back from break, we had the first quarter/second quarter party, where we welcomed the new students and socialized. We were out at the pool grilling and meeting all the new students.
The next day we went water rafting in Sacramento with a big group on a school bus. It was perfect, sunny California weather, and we were surrounded by great friends. It is such a blessing to have schoolmates that become such quality friends. The day was a blast relaxing on the river, splashing around. We even had some fun on a rope swing.
On the way back, everyone crashed on the bus after the long, fun, exhausting day.
The next day, a group of us got up early to head to San Francisco for the AIDS walk. Our school got together to support and donate towards the AIDS research nationwide.
Phew! Seems like so much already, and I’ve only just begun.
The next weekend, a large group of us went to Scottsdale, Ariz. and spent the entire weekend at the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council Symposium. There we were able to network with many sports chiropractors and hear well-known speakers present on newest research in the sports field. The seminars throughout school have been amazing and so important. All of them keep me motivated in school and show me even more of what is out there to explore in our field.
Since the seminar, there have been even more events. There is always something fun to do here—always a game to see, a speaker to listen to, and a sporting event to play in.
Of course in the midst of all this fun, there is the classroom component. I always make sure to find time to get lots of studying in, but I maintain a healthy amount of fun to keep me motivated through this busy and challenging degree. I love every moment!
