You’re a prospective student. It’s 11:00 at night and you have a question about
chiropractic college. What are your options?
A few years ago, the answer might have been to give the web site a quick look,
wait until the college opened the next day and make a few phone calls. But
today’s interactive web environment offers so many more options.
Because Sherman embraces new technology, prospective students can delve
deeper on the Sherman web site during non-business hours by viewing a
movie, scheduling a campus
visit and tour, watching one of the college’s
webinars, checking out a Career Day
slide show, requesting an
information packet, reading
student profiles or gaining a true perspective of chiropractic college life
by browsing through our
Initiated in fall 2005, the student blogs provide prospective students with an
inside look at life in chiropractic college. Bloggers update on a nearly weekly
basis, and usually write about classes, clinic, social events and sometimes even
their personal views on various topics (see
Greg Walsh’s blog if you have a particular interest in sports; or visit
Jaime Browning’s blog if you want to learn about juggling motherhood and
college!). In recent months, bloggers have posted videos, slideshows and more.
Chris Ethridge recently tackled a tough question that a future Sherman
student posted in his comments:
I just recently got accepted to Sherman and will be starting in July 2008.
I just wanted to know of any tips or advice you could give me?
Anything you would do differently or wish you had known?
Thanks so much!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Sherman!
First of all, if you haven’t already had a campus tour, I recommend spending
a day with a student – going to classes with them, getting them to show you
around campus and the town of Spartanburg, and getting to meet and socialize
with your soon-to-be peers. Anything that I would do differently???
...hmmm...Yes, I would not have waited so long to come to Sherman.
Chiropractic is truly a gift that the world has been given. Unfortunately,
many people don’t know anything about Chiropractic, or worse, have been
misinformed. I sincerely hope that you will develop a deep seated yearning
to share this “secret” to better health with others.
Meanwhile, fellow blogger
Matthew Christopher celebrates an upper-lot parking space – the reward of
being named Tour Guide of the Quarter by the Admission Office. So perhaps he’ll
be the one to show Melissa around campus!
