Palmer College of Chiropractic was selected by Victory Media,
publishers of G.I. Jobs magazine, as one of an elite group of
Military Friendly® Schools for 2017. This was the sixth
consecutive year Palmer has earned this honor. Palmer College
participates at the highest level possible in the Yellow Ribbon
GI Education Enhancement Program, offered by the U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs.
Palmer’s Veterans Clubs offer community support for student-veterans
and provides an outlet for them to continue to serve. "One of the
goals of the Veterans Club is to explore ways to reach out to the
veterans in our community, and, in particular, the brave men and
women whose service resulted in a disability that presents challenges
in their post-military lives," says Trevor Wendel, current West campus
The Palmer Student Alumni Foundation (PSAF) connects students with alumni.
Davenport-campus PSAF members met with Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni Association state representatives
during the 2016 Davenport Homecoming in August. In
order to share the information they learn, PSAF members host a
monthly column in The Beacon student newspaper. Minnesota State
Representative Seth Sazama, D.C. (Davenport ’11) wrote the first
column in December 2016. Online views of The Beacon went from an
average of 600 to more than 2,000 for the December issue.
