    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe, however there are a few sketchy neighborhoods in the surrounding area. Similar sketchiness to many city neighborhoods.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several clubs on campus, including technique clubs, Radiology club, professional clubs, and fun clubs such as Boardgames Club.

    What to do for fun

    For the partying type, there are several bars downtown Davenport, only a few blocks from campus. There are parks and trails all over Davenport for the active, outdoors type of people. Many cultural museums and businesses are all over Davenport. The Davenport Farmers Market is year round and a great place to go for fresh produce and good company.

    Food and Dining

    There is a cafeteria and a Starbucks on campus. The Veterans Club also offers food and beverages in their office.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dormitories at Palmer, although the college owns a few apartment complexes near campus. Most people live off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    28-34 credit hours per trimester. In the first year of study you take intensive coursework in gross anatomy, human physiology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, and beginning technique courses. The second year brings many of the intensive technique courses and intro to clinical courses. In the third year, the majority of the coursework is as an intern in the Palmer Clinics.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved with as many clubs, campus activities, and extracurricular seminars as you can while you are a student.

    In three sentences

    Palmer is a great college to become a superb chiropractor. It is the leader in chiropractic education. The coursework is vigorous and Palmer students excel in the NBC Exams.

    Soft Tissue Club, Motion Palpation, AK, and many more

    Bang for the buck

    It can be frustrating at times to be spending so much money on school, but it is an investment in yourself treat it as such.

    What to do for fun

    Exploring the area

    Food and Dining

    The surrounding local food can be above average if you know where to look. There are some local coffee shops that are great places to study, and get a bite to eat while studying. There is a main stretch right down from the school that has a local coffee shop, burger joint (better than most), and some great sushi. Ask any local and you can find an awesome local hidden treasure.

    Dorm Life

    Local apartment complexes are hit or miss. You must ask around to those who go there, but no matter what you will find something that matches what you are looking for. Some are within walking distance, while others are a bit farther with much better quality amenities.

    Academic Rigor

    This is a very time consuming program. The material can seem overwhelming do to the shear amount within a condensed time. If you stick to it, and don't panic this program will not get the better of you. It can make you the best doctor you want to be.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are ready to work, but you must enjoy your down time to the fullest.
