Marietta, Georgia, January 23, 2020 – Life University (LIFE) will host hundreds of prospective students, alumni, chiropractors and others this weekend for a series of special events.

Life University is home to the world’s largest single-campus Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) program. In addition, LIFE offers 15 undergraduate degrees, as well as a pre-chiropractic track and three graduate degrees in the fields of sport health science, clinical nutrition and positive psychology.

LIFE Leadership Weekend gives individuals considering a future in Chiropractic an introduction to the profession and the unique educational experience they would receive at LIFE. From Thursday, January 23 to Saturday, January 25, 2020, more than 150 prospective students and their guests will interact with LIFE faculty, students and alumni, explore the University’s campus in Marietta, Georgia, just northwest of Atlanta, and participate in outdoor learning activities.

Meanwhile, members of the LIFEforce network will attend LIFEforce Weekend. LIFEforce is a network of chiropractors dedicated to expanding worldwide access to chiropractic care and to attracting students to Life University.

“LIFE Leadership Weekend is a cornerstone to D.C. admissions at Life University,” said Dr. Cynthia Boyd, Vice President for Enrollment. “This weekend provides prospective students with all the information they need to decide if Chiropractic is right for them and if LIFE is the right place for their education.”

Boyd added that over the course of the weekend, students and their families have several opportunities to ask practicing doctors any questions they have about the profession.

Jacob Bandelaria, a fifth-quarter chiropractic student and member of Student LIFEforce, said he first heard about the University from two LIFE alumni who are LIFEforce doctors in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio.

“They both sent me to Life University. I came down for a LIFE Leadership Weekend, and I just fell in love right away,” Bandelaria said. “This is the only school that I applied to. I didn’t really look anywhere else. I just knew this is where I wanted to go to school.”

Also this weekend, about 200 chiropractors, chiropractic assistants, educators and students will attend the LIFE Vision RAW conference. Speakers include some of the most prominent thought leaders in the chiropractic profession.

“LIFE Vision RAW offers our community a chance to experience a high-impact chiropractic seminar,” said Cheryl Lawlor, Project Manager to the Vice President of University Advancement. “Our goal is to really engage our students with our D.C.s on relevant and important topics that affect today’s chiropractors in their practice and their patients. Our job is to support this amazing community through growth, learning and a sense of passion for what we do in this precious field.”

“LIFE Vision is a wonderful seminar that many LIFEforce doctors attend along with others to hear speakers and share in LIFE’s philosophy of health and well-being,” Boyd said. “And it is fun!”
