My First Quarter- Jenna Salyer
The best advice is to talk to people. Don’t be afraid to meet everybody. Don’t think that you are the only one thinking ‘Oh, I don’t know anybody. I don’t know anything.’ Because everybody is feeling the same way. It really is true that it’s not just you. If you get up the courage to talk to somebody, it will make you feel so much better.
My First Quarter- Laxmi Shah
Specifically, if you want to get into the D.C. program, you need to know what your ‘Why?’ is. Why do you want to do Chiropractic? What are you going to do with it? What kind of chiropractor do you want to be? What techniques do you want to practice? You really need to know why. If you don’t know your why, you’re not going to be able to push through all of the courses that we have at Life U.
My First Quarter- Joseph Trovato
I think that what made my first quarter at Life U memorable was meeting a lot of upper quarter students who are very influential and introducing me to different techniques and different clubs and seminars. And as I continued on with school, I was able to start narrowing down what I actually liked and what I didn’t like and start making my path a little bit more specific.
My First Quarter- Ayman Mahmoud
Diversity is the first thing that comes to mind. But more importantly, it’s a platform where Muslims get to represent themselves, which isn’t always the case in some media sources. Also, inclusivity across cultures/beliefs is huge, I think. In the end, we’re all one kind – humankind.
My First Quarter- Heather Garrison
I liked being able to come into such a close-knit program and community. Everyone was very like-minded. Everyone here is so passionate about chiropractic. It was a big shift coming, going from being at home in North Carolina versus being here where you’re surrounded by so many like-minded, passionate people.
My 1st Quarter – Danielle Albright
Be open. Make sure you’re diverse. We do have an [unspoken] rule where if you see somebody on campus to say, “Hi,” to get used to talking to people you don’t know. Enjoy it; have fun. That’s all it is really about—having fun and making connections and to do what you have to do in the classroom. And if you are in a sport, do what you have to do in the sport and in the classroom as well.
My 1st Quarter – Shani Tyson
Everything was new. I’m originally from California, so coming all the way to Georgia, I was able to see a lot more green than before in my hometown. Just getting familiar with the area, it was pretty adventurous just to get to explore everything in Marietta and what Life U had to offer.
My 1st Quarter – Citlali Salas-Abrego
I am currently in my second quarter at Life U. In my first quarter, I would have to say attending the different activities that [Life U] offers made it memorable. I went to the Philosophy Night with a teammate of mine. It allowed me to see different things about Chiropractic that I hadn’t really thought about before.
