Mark your calendar for May 24-27. It’s Lyceum time again, and this is one of the most exciting events of the year. I hope you are making plans to attend the Lyceum 2007 program. The program is packed with outstanding speakers such as Chris Widener, Don Harte, D.C., Thom Gelardi, D.C., Shawn Powers, D.C., Dick Plummer, D.C., Terry Rondberg, D.C., Heidi Farrell, Yvonne Villanueva-Russell, Ph.D., Mark Ohlstein, D.C., and many more.

As you know, one of the major events during our annual Lyceum is the Career Day program. This is an excellent time for you to introduce prospective students to Sherman College and chiropractic.

This year’s Career Day program, which will take place on Saturday, May 26, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., is an opportunity for prospective students to tour the campus, learn about the philosophy of straight chiropractic and meet faculty, staff and current students. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to have their transcripts evaluated, obtain admissions information and have financial aid questions addressed by our admissions and financial aid representatives. It is a time for both fun and information sharing for the prospective student. Having the student on campus can be a powerful part of their decision to choose Sherman as the place for their chiropractic education.

I encourage you to start making contact with prospective students in your area now and invite them to Career Day. Talk with the young people who come into your office – or even the more mature patient, because we have a lot of career-changers in chiropractic.

Contacting a local college or high school and arranging to speak to a class is another excellent way to make contact with prospective students. Set your goal to have at least one student attend Career Day 2007. And remember – if that student enrolls at Sherman, you’ll earn $1,000 in scholarship credit in your name that you can later award to a worthy student of your choosing once your My Scholarship account reaches $5,000.

Help us make this the biggest and most productive Career Day ever. The Lyceum Career Day program is completely free to the prospective student and his/her guests, and the college will even pay lodging for one night for each prospective student attending Career Day. Students can register by calling 800-849-8771, ext. 222, or by filling out a brief online form at
