Student Learning and Success
Leading the way
More than 100 students and faculty members attended
the Talk the TIC contest in June 2016 on Palmer’s
Davenport campus. Talk the TIC is an international,
student-based speech competition created to challenge
chiropractic students to develop a five-minute speech
explaining chiropractic to a layperson. Nine students
participated in the speaking competition, and the top
three were selected to compete in the Palmer finals in
July. The winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip
to compete in the Talk the TIC finals in Marietta, Ga.,
in October 2016.
Palmer College of Chiropractic is on the
2016 Military Friendly® Schools list
for the fifth consecutive year.
This is due in part to Palmer's
participation in the Yellow Ribbon
Program, which covers tuition costs
for qualified veterans.
The David D. Palmer Health Sciences Library on the
Florida campus was renovated and reopened in
September 2015. There are seven new study rooms, with
integrated whiteboards and monitors, and a new "information
commons" area just outside of the main library, complete
with lounge area, computers and printers.
The installation of awnings over the
stairways and courtyard on the
Florida campus is providing
additional comfort and protection for
students against the hot Florida sun
and occasional downpours. The awnings
also provide more shade in the
courtyard area where students
come to study and relax.
