Attendance high at March Davenport Campus visit

4/11/2012 (Archived)

A grand total of 229 visitors—97 of them prospective students—experienced Palmer on March 31 during the best-attended Saturday Campus Visit ever hosted by the Davenport Campus. At press time, 18 visitors who had not already applied to the College had done so.

Students and their guests started the day with a healthy breakfast as Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., welcomed them to the campus. Then they learned what Palmer has to offer through the Interactive Classroom Experience. Students pulled on rubber gloves and explored specimens of the human body in the anatomy lab; used their hands to palpate in the technique room; saw the digital X-ray suite; and performed some of the simple tests that practicing chiropractors use in their offices every day to evaluate the health of their patients.

After lunch, students received complimentary adjustments in the Academic Health Center; learned about admissions and financial aid; and heard presentations about Clinic Abroad, the Palmer Center for Business Development, and the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research. The event wrapped up with a social reception at the nearby Putnam Museum.

"This visit had a great vibe and lots of energy," said Angie O'Tool, campus visit coordinator. "It was rewarding to see so many prospective students enjoying themselves and learning more about chiropractic and what a Palmer education has to offer them."
