  NEWS AND EVENTS 
  Student to Share Their Lives Through Online Journals
---------------------------------------------------------
 
 


Several Sherman students have agreed to bare it all – sort of.

Mikk Behr, Cara Davis and Caroline Getecha have all agreed to keep online journals of their experiences at Sherman College. The journals will be posted to the college’s web site (www.sherman.edu) in the next two weeks, but the journals’ permanent homes will be on a new web site, www.truesherman.com.

This admission web site is still being developed and will be geared specifically toward prospective students. The new site will be officially posted in February or March. But until then, you can get a sneak peek at the journals by visiting the Student Life section of the college’s main web site, www.sherman.edu.

The student journals will offer prospective students a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a chiropractic student at Sherman through written entries and photos. The students will write new entries every week to ten days.

Mikk Behr is a fourth-quarter student from Denver, PA. He has a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology with a sports medicine option from Pennsylvania State University and is a tour guide for the Admission Office. He loves Disney World and football and enjoys hanging out with friends.

Cara Davis is a fifth-quarter student from Greenville, SC. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of South Carolina Spartanburg and is a tour guide and work-study student for the Admission Office. She enjoys reading, watching movies and spending time with family and friends. “I’m excited about keeping the online journal,” Cara says. “Hopefully my entries won’t be boring!” She looks forward to helping prospective students learn about life at Sherman. “I think this is a neat way to introduce them to the daily activities of chiropractic college,” she said.

Caroline Getecha is a seventh-quarter student from Kenya. She has a bachelor’s degree in biology/pre-medicine from Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. She is a tutor and serves as president of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students, an organization which serves as an international forum open to students of all affiliated chiropractic colleges. Caroline thinks being an international student will give her a unique perspective in writing her journal entries. “Since I’m from Kenya, this will be a good way for other international students to see what it’s actually like to be a student here.”

The journals will be posted to the college’s main web site, www.sherman.edu, within the next two weeks, so log on soon to share a day in the life with Cara, Mikk or Caroline!
