Students experience a spirit of cooperation and generosity in our program and on campus, which reflects the quality of life in the Quad Cities. They share classes with peers from the area who appreciate the convenience and flexibility we offer local residents, as well as with students who come here from locations such as Arizona and Minnesota.
- Students take part in a range of service learning projects, including volunteering at local parish health fairs and homeless shelters, screening for high blood pressure at soup kitchens and building homes with Habitat for Humanity; some even worked on an "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" project.
- Students participate in state, regional and national PT conferences. Past trips to national conferences have taken students to Las Vegas and New Orleans.
- Students are leaders on campus. Organizations like the Student Physical Therapy Organization, the Graduate Student Government Association and the Iowa Physical Therapy Association Student Special Interest Group enrich their relationships with classmates and working PTs through professional, social, fundraising and philanthropic activities.
