Why did you choose Sherman College?
I liked the location of Sherman College, as well as it’s smaller class size. Coming from a large university, it’s a nice change to know all of the students, as well as the personal attention from the faculty and staff.
Activities you are involved in at Sherman College:
Tour Guide; Anatomy Lab Assistant and Tutor; Palpation Club; Diversified Club; ADAPT Club
Favorite thing to do or place to go on a Saturday night:
In the summer- hang out in Downtown Spartanburg at Wild Wing Café or Delaneys; in the winter- snow skiing at Sugar Mountain, North Carolina
Favorite thing about Sherman College:
The people! We have some great faculty members and I am lucky to have fun people in my classes. You need a little bit of comic relief from Dr. Clayton or Dr. Duke when discussing the sacral plexus!!
Most challenging thing about Sherman College:
Multi-tasking! We have to study for 3-5 tests in one week, or two or three in the same day, while still going to clubs and class. You want to stay well-rounded, but sometimes it is hard.
Advice for students choosing chiropractic as a career and/or coming to Sherman College:
Be prepared to work! Most people don’t understand the commitment it takes to be successful in school. Also, don’t get bogged down- make sure you make time to work out and maintain your physical health, as well as maintain your sanity.
