Military Friendly Schools: MF'17 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 student.


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.
