One local college is trying to make it more affordable for students to attend. Starting this fall, Northeast College of Health Sciences, the former New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, will lower the cost of on-campus housing.
The College will reduce the cost of single-style on-campus housing to just $1590 per 15-week trimester. When combined with the College’s meal plan, that comes out to just $623 per month for both room and on-campus dining.
“Becoming a doctor of chiropractic requires dedication and focus,” said Northeast College President Dr. Michael Mestan. “At Northeast, we are committed to the success of our students and are happy to provide another avenue to support their graduate experience. Our new pricing for on-campus living will allow students to focus on their studies and immerse themselves in the College’s many academic and educational opportunities as they live and learn on our healthcare-dedicated campus.”
According to a release from the College, choosing to live in the Northeast residence halls gives students access to move-in ready, furnished suites with high-speed internet access, on-site laundry facilities, parking, and 24/7 security. Campus living also removes the high costs of commuting and puts students within walking distance of all their learning spaces, including the College’s state-of-the-art labs, library, and even the 32,000-square-foot Standard Process Health and Fitness Center.
Alumnus Dr. Joshua Kollmann (D.C. ‘06 ), team chiropractor for the Carolina Panthers NFL team, started creating his professional network as a student at the College and said he was able to do so by staying active on campus and in the College community. When a student asks for his advice his first response is always “immersion.”
“You are here. Take advantage of it and immerse yourself. Really apply yourself in all aspects and take advantage of every aspect and opportunity that the College offers,” Kollmann told current Northeast students.
