Degree: Alternative and Complementary Medicine and Medical Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I started my college career without much more direction than that I wanted to do something that I enjoyed and which I felt mattered. I was accepted to the University of South Florida straight out of high school and spent the first couple of semesters flipping from one major to the next marine biology, literature, humanities, pharmacy, health care administration; you name it, I probably majored in it at some point or another. I became dissuaded with school, realizing that I was just meandering through the various classes, racking up crazy amounts of student loan debt in the process. I fell into the field of integrative medicine completely by chance when I began working at a walk-in clinic with physicians whom just happened to be of that mind set. I grew up in that clinic, was shaped by its principles and medicinal practices during the most formative years of my young adult life. As the vision of the clinic shifted even further into complementary alternative medicine practices, so did my thoughts about the way that medicine should be practiced. After several years, while on a mission for career growth, I took a position at a primary care practice and stepped headlong back in to the world of conventional medicine. I quickly realized how precious the approach to health and well-being at my previous office had been and was saddened by the approach of western medicine. The realization that this was the way the majority of our nations healthcare worked moving patients through as quickly and efficiently as possible, only dealing with the acute issue at hand, and acting as if pharmaceuticals medications are king. Determined to complete my college education, and with far off hopes of playing some type of role in the change of health care as a whole, I started looking into what options were available for completing my college education during this period. I knew what I liked and what my interests were, but had little faith that my remaining educational career would consist of much more than a mad dash to get a degree under my belt. It was a total fluke that I happened upon the Alternative Medicine program at Everglades University, but I knew as soon as I did that this was the program for me. An admissions counselor reached out to me, and I was enrolled within a week. The smaller size of the campus and the involvement of the faculty was very appealing. For the first time, I had the feeling that my success really mattered and that I was not just a number or a face amongst the crowds, as had often been the case at larger universities. If I needed to, I was easily able to speak with the Campus Vice President- Ms. Siganos, Associate Dean- Ms. Hamilton, Ms. Eales who took care of my records and bills & books and or even my financial aid director- Ms. Hidalgo. I would either have my questions answered directly, or would know that answers would soon be made available to me. The length of the classes worked for me and my process of learning as I didnt have any time to grow bored or distracted with any particular subject before we were moving on to the next. The professors were all experts in their field and the real life experience that they brought to the curriculum, in my opinion, added an extra layer to the program overall. I feel that I was blessed to have met the people that I did in this program, both professors and students alike, and believe that I learned a great deal and gained some enlightening insights about the alternative medicine practice and way of living from them and their experiences prior to attending the Everglades University Tampa campus. I believe that this is a group of people that I will stay connected with and may even collaborate with in some fashion or another in the future as this field continues to grow.

Degree: Alternative and Complementary Medicine and Medical Systems, General
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience here at Everglades University has been fantastic. I was skeptical and stressed out at first because I wasn't sure if I could go to school and work out how to finance school on my own. I decided to give it a try because I was tired of the healthcare I was receiving and I thought there had to be a better way; there had to be something I was missing. In July 2018 I will graduate with my Bachelors in Alternative Medicine and I will enter the Master's program for Public Health Administration with a Concentration in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Im looking forward to this next step as it will be another stepping stone to my career plans. This masters degree will help me make an impartation into the lives of the people in my community which will make a much bigger impact in the community long term. I am currently using the knowledge I've gained at Everglades University to implement a community garden to enhance a food pantry in the community. The classes are smaller at Everglades University; the Instructors have more time to focus on each student which has really helped me achieve and maintain a 4.0 GPA. I ABSOLUTELY love the staff at Everglades; they have gone above and beyond to help and encourage me in every way they can. Coming to Everglades University and choosing the Alternative Medicine program was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Degree: Alternative and Complementary Medicine and Medical Systems, Other
Graduation Year: 2019

I started this University in July of 2016 and I must say I absolutely love the way it is set up so that full time employees like myself can actually get an education while also working. I live at home however I help my parents with bills and pay bills of my own as well so I can't go to a community college like HCC full time and work part time. When I did attempt to do both work and school full time in the past at HCC I had bad grades as I just couldn't seem to juggle everything. Now at Everglades not only do I work full time and go to school full time but I am also the Secretary of the Student Government and still make time to go to church and the gym. The staff are so friendly and welcoming they always greet you with a big smile on their face and everyone makes you feel as though you are home away from home. So far the majority of the instructors I have had actually take the time to ensure that you get what is being taught and push you to do your best. I truly love Everglades they are like a second family to me!

I love Everglades University! It will be a year that I have been at this school and I have nothing to complain about. The staff is super helpful, caring, understanding, always putting their students first. The professors are amazing, all professionals in medicine that bring insight, knowledge and tips to the class. They are 100% dedicated to the success of their students. It is so refreshing to be in a school like this. I am mother of 3 children and work full time so to not have to stress about my school is amazing, WORTH EVERY PENNY! I was the VP in SGA and that was such a blessing. Really helped me find my talents that I didn't know I had! I would and do recommend this school to everyone I meet, and I am so proud to be representing this school. There is no other school like this in the area with this degree. I am forever thankful for this school and what they are doing to change not only my life but the life of my children! Thank you, thank you , thank you!

I liked that I could work during the day and take classes one night each week and on Saturday. Everglades University is a great choice if you are an adult learner who wants to finish school while working full-time. Also, their staff is really helpful.

I attend the Orlando branch of Everglades University and I learn a lot from my classes! I also have experienced helpful staff and fun activities lately. I recommend EU Orlando to everyone looking for a small learning environment with a flexible class schedule.

Degree: Public Health, Other
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience here at Everglades University has been phenomenal. I was skeptical when I first enrolled (just like many people would be) but since I'm in love with Natural Medicine, I thought I'd give the program a try. On March 18, 2017 I graduated with my Bachelors in Alternative Medicine and now Im currently going for my Master's in Public Health Administration with a Concentration in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Im looking forward to my next graduation because thats when life really starts. This masters degree is just one of many stepping stones to become a great doctor. With this degree, I want to better myself and heal the lives of others by changing their circumstances in a more positive way. My goal is to become either a Chiropractor, Homeopathic Doctor, Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM), or open up my own line of natural products. Everglades University provides a great learning environment. I love how the classes arent too big, it allows for more individualized attention to their students. Since the classes are smaller here, the teachers have more time to focus on each student which has really helped my grades and GPA go up. The teachers and staff are always available to go the extra mile to help students in every way they can. I used to be terrified of public speaking and presenting in front of a group (even a group of 5 people) and I became stronger due to the support from all my fellow colleagues. Just by overcoming that obstacle, I developed self-confidence and made new friends. This university has taught me leadership skills that I can carry on with me throughout the rest of my life. This degree opens up many doors and opportunities, if its something youre really passionate about. For me, I enjoyed every minute of my experience here at Everglades University and its one that I will share with others and never take for granted.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

I loved my experience with Everglades University! The staff and faculty are always available to help you in every way. I really felt like they wanted me to succeed and each person helped push me and encourage me through the difficult times. I can't imagine another university offering such support. I would recommend Everglades to anyone looking to continue their education.
