There is no drug scene that I am aware of, but the faculty are very good about informing the students of the dangers of drugs and assistance to those in need.

I live off campus, so I do not have an opinion on Campus housing.

The network reliability/wireless access seem to be excellent, but the computers are a little out of date. The reason I still rate it as an A even though the computers are out of date is because I didn't come to Palmer to get a good experience with computers. I came to Palmer to receive a great experience in learning the art of adjusting.

It is hard for me to have an opinion on this matter because I walk to school. However everyone that I know does not have a big problem with parking.

Palmer has one of the best Rugby teams in the nation! However I do not play but I enjoy watching these guys and gals compete.

Guys & Girls:
The majority of students at Palmer are health conscience and for good reason because we are going to be in the health field as doctors of chiropractic. Students occasionally wear sweats but do take care of themselves and are happy individuals with a bright future.

Love the program. It's very challenging but you learn a lot!

Lots of variety, but some places are too far from campus. Landlords who understand you are a student is a plus. Cost is relatively reasonable for the area

Variety of people from all over the country. Everyone is very friendly, and intelligent and very driven at this school. It provides a great learning experience

Winters are typically mild, so school rarely gets cancelled. Nice summer weather also

The nightlife at Palmer College depends on where you go. If you go downtown you need to be very careful as it is likely unsafe to be alone.

Well, what can I say, it's a graduate school. Most people have gotten through undergrad, so they figure we're adults, and they treat us as such. There is no campus housing, technically (they own some nearby apartments, but it's not like living under a campus rule). Palmer security does patrol these apartments, which is actually nice, but they're not controlling over what you do. The teachers know their students hit the bars on occasion, and they just leave it up to you to make the best choice for yourself. After all, you're paying a lot of money for the education, and you're responsible for whether you get that money's worth. Just don't cause trouble, and you're good.

Depends on the season. Summer was mostly nice, with a few very hot days. Later summer and early to mid-fall was gorgeous weather. The campus is right off the Mississippi River, and almost downtown, so the view adds to the nice weather. But now it's gotten pretty cold, and I'm from Texas, so fair warning to those used to a warmer climate, it is something to keep in mind. Pack your long johns!

It's not the highest-tech school, but to be fair, it doesn't have a big need to be. (Keep in mind it was founded in 1897) The technology most used by students is in radiology labs for x-rays. The library has open-access computers, and there are printers available in a few places. The wireless network is available nearly everywhere on campus (library requires separate sign-in) and is a decent speed. Most people use laptops or tablets in class instead of printing off some teachers' notes, but that all depends on the best learning style of the student. Admittedly, they are a big help, because required note-sets become bulky quick.

Palmer prides themselves in being the center of Chiropractic, and they do live up to a standard. The curriculum moves fast though, so it can be rough in the beginning, when everything is bookwork. But most of the teachers are very understanding, and very willing to help you learn and really know what they're teaching. Most of them are, or have been doctors in the field, so you get a lot of relevant clinical information right from the start. I haven't gotten into the technique classes yet, but I know they have a decently broad, basic set of skills to learn, and you start working with your hands in 2nd trimester, which is a big plus. Their business center holds a lot of events as well, to help prepare you for life out in the field.

Studying to become a Doctor of Chiropractic has been an amazing experience. The workload is excessive. However, it is appropriately excessive. I am going to be a doctor, which means expectations for my performance are very high. Therefore, the workload must be very high. One of my favorite things about Palmer is the endless sources of information. From asking teachers who have years of experience out in practice to our two floors of libraries that contain endless books and DVD's with information, no question goes unanswered. Your education here is limitless. The curriculum is also fantastic. The classes are designed to complement each other each trimester. They are so well put together that when you are done with a trimester, all of the information from the classes sticks with you as you enter the next trimester. This would be one reason why Palmer does well on National Boards as well as why we do so well out in practice. There are many job opportunities on campus and off of campus. There are tutorials that hire students who have passed a class with an A, there are labs that are looking for TA's and general office work for those that are looking for something. Palmer also participates in the community by hiring students for jobs such as American Reads. This is an afterschool program for kids whose parents may not be able to pick them up until after five. The Palmer students along with the Stepping Stones staff help these kids with homework and make sure these children are safe until their parents can take them home.

The dining near Palmer College of Chiropractic is student budget friendly and a variety that can complement most, if not all, cultures. Within a two mile radius of the school you can find Mexican, Asian, American, Italian and German. Venturing farther out from campus there are even more options. My favorite place to eat is Kong's Thai Bistro. They serve vegetarian dishes as well as dishes for meat lovers. They know what is in their own sauces for people, such as myself, with food allergies. This makes dining easy and delicious. One of my other favorite places to visit is Redband. When I need a little caffeine before school starts, I can walk two blocks up the street from campus and grab a cup of the most delicious coffee I have ever tasted. They cost no more than a startbucks coffee. Once you've had a Redband coffee, you will never want to drink any other kind of coffee again.

The drug scene at Palmer College of Chiropractic is unnoticeable. At Palmer, we focus on health. Our goal is to help our patients and our community to become healthier as a whole. To do this, we must first be healthy ourselves. If we were to participate in detrimental actions, such as using drugs, then it would be counterproductive to our ultimate goal.

Relatively Straightforward for Incoming Freshman – I am still in the process of receiving financial aid but so far the process has been pretty easy and straightforward. The financial aid office has been helpful in guiding me through the process.

Palmer College of Chiropractic doesn't judge anyone on ethnic/racial diversity or background, political beliefs. religion, and sexual orientation. Their main emphasis for acceptance is based on grades in pre-studies and also the potential of the student to become a talented chiropractor.

Not much strictness needed – Palmer is a doctorate school, so the students are normally older. Because of this they aren't strict with rules or anything. The administration is more concerned with our safety and well being than anything else.

Variety Is Key – Within Palmer's buildings there are quite a few different areas to dine and buy food. There is a different type of food everyday which is nice because it is not repetitive.

PCC and Me! Palmer is in the heart of downtown Davenport, IA and is absolutely beautiful. The campus itself is historic in nature. The downtown life can be shady in some parts of town but there are great pubs and clubs to go to that provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere. North of Davenport is nicer as far as the shopping centers and safety are concerned. Overall Davenport is a great place to live
