Bickmeyer’s biggest piece of advice is for prospective students to come to a LIFE Leadership Weekend and see if they fall in love with the philosophy. “If you don’t love chiropractic philosophy, you are going to get burnt out,” she said

“When I came to LIFE Leadership Weekend, the Student Ambassadors were a key thing for my decision to come here because seeing all of their stories and struggles, them still finding a way to be here and do what they love inspired me,” she shared. “They left a mark in me that made me want to be able to do that to other people.” Rosado became a Student Ambassador in order to work with prospective students and guests to give them the amazing experience that she had.

“Ask yourself why you are in this space,” Getter said. “How are we going to get you to that why? You have to be open to being counseled around that because it is never just about the money; it is about your purpose. If your purpose is in sync with the donor’s perspective, they are going to support you because they have been where you are.” To that end, she shared that Life University’s core values that are engrained in the campus culture – Integrity, Vitalism and Lasting Purpose – help students get clear on their position and purpose and help them find that “why” they’ve been looking for.

Like many others, Javier Del Hoyo’s initial experience with Chiropractic came from a traumatic experience. Del Hoyo was involved in a car accident at eight years old when he received care from a chiropractor for the first time. However, the next time he encountered chiropractic care in his late teens, with experience and understanding, he became convinced of the vast benefits it provided.

When looking at Chiropractic through an artist’s lens, you may well see it as an “art” as well. Michael Becker, on his way to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, does indeed take that view. An extremely well-spoken individual, Becker possesses a degree in Philosophy obtained from the University of Tampa in Florida, yet is now at Life University walking a very different path. He says that LIFE’s philosophy aligns well with his own personal beliefs, and after he came to the realization that he wanted to serve his fellow man, he came to LIFE to learn a profession that does just that.
