The friends you make in chiropractic school are unlike any other. One of the many reasons I chose the CUKC College of Chiropractic was because it kept me closer to my family. Little did I know that in a year’s time I would be surrounded day in, day out by my second family, my chiro family.
I walked into my first day of chiropractic college only knowing a single person, my boyfriend, Gabe. A year later though, I found myself surrounded by many of my best friends. The friends you make in chiropractic school are unlike any other. They are not just people you see a couple of hours a week, you see them every day, sometimes all day and they know exactly what you are going through.
In many ways, my chiro family reminds me of when I was growing up. I am a twin, and one of the benefits I always saw to being a twin was that he understood what was going on both at home and at school. My chiro family is essentially my twin to the rest of the world. They get what it is to be a chiropractic student.
Not everyone will understand how exciting it is to pass Biochemistry 2, or provide your first adjustment. Not everyone will understand the long nights of studying, or why you would want to give up your weekend to go to a chiropractic seminar, but your chiro family…they will. In fact, more than likely they will probably be there to experience all of those moments with you. This weekend my family will be visiting and I cannot wait for them to get to meet my chiro family. The people you enter our chiropractic college with will start as your peers but end as a family.
