    Amazing school. I really appreciate how much time and energy all the professors and faculty put into ensuring the students success not only academically, but also physically. They go out of there way to check if you are struggling both in school or outside of school in order to stay on top of the rigorous challenge of a doctorate level education. Life happens and it’s nice to know that school doesn’t have to come first. Thanks for the support and I’m excited to continue my education here!

    When I was looking at different chiropractic schools, I spoke with 3 different chiropractors on which they would recommend. Each said UWS along with a few others. Being from the east coast, I didn't want to move to Oregon, but I kept it on my list of schools to look at. Once I visited the campus I saw not just the facilities but also how the students interacted. It truly is a community here that supports you. The courses are difficult, but the students work together and the faculty is always there to help. l have not taken Boards yet, but all of the upper quarter students I spoke to said that they felt well prepared. UWS is a great choice and I highly recommend it!
    The experience so far has been fantastic. The anatomy lab is outstanding and I look forward to the gross anatomy labs all the time. The professors are very knowledgeable and are always willing to take their time to help out. My peers are all friendly and very driven so it motivates me as well. We are moving campuses the following fall and although I'm excited, a part of me wishes we were not moving. I fell in love with the current location!
