January 14, 2012 — Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs welcomed nearly 100 new students to the school’s suburban St. Louis (Chesterfield) campus for orientation Jan. 10.
They begin undergraduate, graduate and professional classes this week as part of the spring 2012 trimester. According to Steve Held, Logan’s director of admissions, the nearly all-day orientation helps new students adapt to the learning and life experience at Logan.
“Orientation helped make my first day at Logan much less overwhelming,” said Alison Cooper, a native Ferdinand, Ind. and a Dec. 2011 graduate of the University of Evansville. Her roommate, Ashley Waggott of Kingsville, Ontario, Canada and the University of Windsor, agreed. “The day was very informative.”
Amy DiMatteo of Lincolnshire, Ill. near Chicago found the orientation experience very welcoming. “I learned everything I wanted to know. The staff and faculty were most helpful.” DiMatteo graduated from the University of Indiana in Bloomington in May 2011.
Chucky Jordan of Ft. Pierce, Fla. arrived at Logan on the recommendation of his chiropractor, Dr. Jason Alviene, a Logan alumnus and one of Chucky’s professors at Keiser University in Port Lucie, Fla. “I considered physical therapy as a career but fell in love with chiropractic,” said Chucky, who completed Accelerated Science Program classes at Logan last year. “Attending orientation has made me feel more comfortable and secure as I begin my chiropractic classes.”
Nick Knaup, a native of Jefferson City, Mo. took a year off school after graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a degree in biology. “The orientation was thorough in covering all aspects of the student experience at Logan. I am even looking at master’s program in Sports Science and Rehabilitation at Logan.”
