Northeast College of Health Sciences, formerly New York Chiropractic College, welcomed new and returning students to the Fall 2021 Trimester. Students in the Doctor of Chiropractic Program began classes at the Seneca Falls, N.Y. campus on Sept. 8, the same day students in the 100% online nutrition and human anatomy and physiology instruction master’s degree programs started studies virtually.
As pandemic safety measures continue to be observed across campus, the College began its traditional 15-week Fall 2021 trimester as scheduled, in-person, and continues to see strong enrollment.
“I think the pandemic really brought attention to the need for more evidence-based, highly qualified healthcare professionals who are prepared to meet today’s increasing demand,” said Scott Booth, assistant vice president of enrollment development and admissions. “We welcomed a group of incoming students looking to fulfill this need and follow their calling to heal.”
First-term chiropractic students were welcomed by faculty, staff and students on Sept. 7 during the Fall 2021 Trimester Orientation, where they were able to ask questions about life at Northeast, explore campus and hear about the many opportunities and resources (such as counseling, academic support and clubs and organizations) available to them.
Greeted by Northeast College President Dr. Michael Mestan, students received an overview of the student learning experience and the immersive curriculum of their ten trimesters at Northeast.
“We’re all so grateful to have you here with us as we reimagine health together,” said College President Dr. Mestan. “Our expert faculty and staff are 100 percent dedicated to you and your future, and we are all here to help you succeed.”
Closing remarks to new students were delivered by Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Anne Killen, and her words ring true for all Northeast students beginning the term: “You are about to embark on an amazing and challenging academic journey. Our faculty seek to not only educate you but transform your thinking and actions to provide quality patient care, apply professional best practices and always be a leader in the profession.”
