West Campus

Event draws a record number of prospective students to San Jose

During an interactive session, West Campus Guide and current intern Jeremy Lerner talks about the Clinic experience, using fellow Campus Guide Josh Higley as his “patient.” One of the highlights of the day was a group massage for the record number of people at the July West Campus PSE.

More than 150 guests were part of the West Campus Prospective Student Event (PSE) on Saturday, July 10, making it the most well-attended PSE on the Tasman location of the West Campus. The group included 55 prospective students from the U.S. and Canada, many of whom were referred by Palmer alumni. By the end of the day, 37 of them had formally submitted applications to enroll.

The morning portion of the PSE program featured presentations from West Campus President Bill Meeker, D.C., West ’82, M.P.H., and West Campus Director of Student Enrollment Julie Behn, as well as other members of the Admissions and Financial Aid departments.

PSE guests had a chance to see the inside of an anatomy lab and try hands-on projects during the Interactive Classroom Experience. This included presentations by members of the West Campus administration and faculty, including: Makani Lew, D.C., ’91, (Palpation); Thomas Milus, D.C., Davenport ’82, (Clinic); Kenneth Courtney, D.C., (Spinal Anatomy); and Thomas Souza, D.C., (Differential Diagnosis).

The PSE program also included presentations by representatives from various West Campus clubs, including the Sports Council. Other highlights of the event were a barbecue lunch and campus tours provided Campus Guides.

“I experienced such a high level of enthusiasm from everyone who attended the PSE,” said Dr. Meeker. “Not only was it the largest student recruitment event held on the West Campus for many years, it went far beyond my expectations, in terms of faculty and staff participation as well as for the pride I felt in our institution. Palmer clearly is The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education, and we demonstrated it. The feedback from prospective students and their families was very gratifying.”
