SACA Fundraiser and Practicing for Practical Exam

The Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA) had their Halloween potluck for their fund raiser this week. The members of SACA each contributed a dish, and they requested a $5 donation per person to eat. The food was excellent and most of the dishes were made from scratch. It was convenient for students because we didn’t have to leave campus to eat some great food!

As a chiropractic student, I practice and preach optimal health through nutrition. That said, I was happy all the food groups were present. I helped myself to a large portion of salad and took plenty of vegetables. The lovely ladies of SACA even were kind enough to let me take their picture for the blog! Thanks to everyone for the great food and great times!


I am still in the process of taking midterms. Evaluation of the Abdomen, Pelvis, and Lumbar Spine is approaching as well as the practical exam for Lumbar Manipulation. Dr. Arick allowed us time to practice our adjustive procedures and orthopedic tests before the exams. I took advantage of the opportunity by pairing up with a fellow classmate and going through each of them step by step.


Over the weekend I flew home to New Jersey for my sister’s wedding! I played my own composition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the acoustic guitar as our father walked her down the aisle. I was also in the wedding as one of the groomsmen.


Following the wedding, I took a train into New York City to watch the New York Rangers play in Madison Square Garden. It was a great way to end a great weekend. Thankfully home is just a two-hour flight away! I wish I was out of the storm but sadly I am not. More exams are coming so studying is very important. With that said I should get back to it!
