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!
