Minnesotans visit Davenport Campus

On March 11, a busload of 12 students from Minnesota came to the Davenport Campus to learn about the College. Linda Leech, the students’ advisor from Minnesota State University – Mankato, organized the bus trip over the university’s spring break so that the students would have an opportunity to visit several Iowa colleges, including Palmer, the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa.

Ellen Bassler, Admissions, gave a presentation to the group, and two Campus Guides also gave them a tour of the campus. “Palmer was included on the bus trip because one of the students was interested in the College and also because their advisor, Linda, had received chiropractic care from a Palmer graduate,” said Ms. Bassler. At the end of Ms. Bassler’s presentation, five of the 12 students signed up to receive more information about Palmer.

“They were a very attentive audience,” said Ms. Bassler. “Though I had been given a strict timeframe to adhere to regarding my presentation, they stayed well beyond that because we were having such a lively discussion.”

In a follow-up e-mail thanking Ms. Bassler and the College for their generosity to her students, Ms. Leech said the presentation was “marvelous” and that the tour guides “did a fabulous job.”
