The campus visit experience is a valuable tool for prospective students when deciding on the right chiropractic college. In fact, since January 2014, more than 80 percent of enrolled students visited campus prior to enrolling. Campus visits are offered Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and are limited to four prospective students to ensure a personalized experience.

Beginning in August, prospective students coming to Sherman College for a campus visit are being treated to an enhanced VIP experience. Upon arriving, they receive a special VIP badge clearly identifying them as DCs2B so everyone on campus can give them a warm welcome. A personalized brochure features the agenda for the visit and provides information about the college and the Spartanburg area.

Next, prospective student visitors meet with staff members to review the nuts and bolts of the admission and financial aid process. Our highly trained Student Ambassadors take them on a tour of campus, which is followed by a visit with President Edwin Cordero, D.C., or Executive Vice President Neil Cohen, D.C., and lunch at The Farmer’s Table Café.

Campus visitors won’t go home empty handed. Each prospective student receives a one-of-a-kind t-shirt and tumbler to commemorate their visit to Sherman. Finally, each prospective student is given the opportunity to provide feedback on their visit via online survey so the department can continue to improve this critical part of the decision-making process for prospective students.

Sherman College offers another option to experience Sherman College: Showcase Sherman Weekend, our quarterly open house for prospective students and college advisors. This event allows prospective students to be immersed in the campus culture for two days, learning about the chiropractic program, meeting faculty, staff and students as well as touring downtown Spartanburg. The college began hosting Showcase Sherman Weekends in July 2014, and the event has grown considerably since then.
