West Campus welcomes largest Fall Quarter class in eight years

Fifty new students initiated their chiropractic studies at Palmer’s West Campus this month, marking the largest entering Fall Quarter class in eight years.

Of the 50, 47 are members of the 1st Quarter class, and three are transfer students. More than half of the class members are from states other than California, including Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. The class also includes seven international students (from Canada, Korea and Switzerland).

More than 40 of the 50 new members of the West Campus community enter the Palmer program with an undergraduate degree, including four with an M.A., M.S., or M.B.A.

“Guiding a prospective student from application to matriculation is a team effort, and the size of the Fall Quarter class reflects the collective contributions of many people within the West community,” said Julie Behn, West Campus enrollment director.

“In particular, I want to recognize the efforts of my enrollment team members Bill Riley, Arthur Rios and Teresa Salazar. I also want to thank everyone else who interacts with prospective students in the course of their decision-making process, from Financial Aid and Student Services, to the Campus Guides, and our faculty and administrators. This collective effort and involvement makes a big impact on the student’s decision of the school they ultimately choose to attend. In fact, new students often acknowledge the supportive community spirit they encountered during campus visits as one of the major reasons they decided to attend Palmer’s West Campus.”
