We asked our students why they like KCOM. Here is what they have to say about . . .
Diversity on Campus
"There is a strong sense of camaraderie. Everyone is working together rather than competing against one another."
- Bryan Van Dyke
"I’ve been able to meet fantastic people from all parts of the country, which allows for great perspectives on different ways of life."
- Allison Schuessler
"Kirksville has a diverse student body that pulls students from all over the country, bringing their backgrounds and perspectives into a united common goal." - Ernest Wong
"Even though there are people from all walks of life and every corner of the country, I still feel like I'm a part of a close-knit family. We all share common goals and know each other’s stresses and concerns."
- Jacob Moe
"Most of the diversity on campus comes from students having gathered from all over the country bringing different personalities, religions, perspectives and experiences. It adds a lot of flavor, love, and laughter to the everyday intensities of medical school." - Esther Rhee
"There is a real mix of culture throughout the ATSU staff and the student body. To gain different perspectives on many issues helps us to grow as future physicians." - Joe Heller
"Diversity provides learning opportunities. Each person is from a different background, religion, or state and has different ideas that allow us to understand something other than what we learn in class."
- Ravi Talati
