    Students aged 25 to 35, including returning veterans, are eager to start working.

    Keiser, the University’s ein Port St. Lucie campus, was officially relocated in March. It is now housed in a 75,000-square-foot two-story structure in Tradition.

    The new campus is replacing the old campus, which was located at the plaza of U.S. 1 in Port St. Lucie for more than 15 years.

    Additionally, the university relocated its Golf & Sports Management College from Port St. Lucie to the West Palm Beach area, where dormitories house students mainly from other countries.

    The new building is part of Tradition. At one point, the previous Digital Domain site had been contemplated for the Port St. Lucie location. Still, its size125,000 square feet, as well as other logistical hurdles, resulted in the decision of the university to construct its building on the acreage near Traditional Medical Center and Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies.

    “The Digital Domain building was more than what we needed,” said Arthur Keiser, founder of the university with campuses throughout Florida. “With the new facility, we’re able to accommodate our non-traditional students, primarily adult learners. The building utilises space well, featuring an outer and inner circle of laboratories and classrooms.

    “Plus, we are right on Village Parkway and Discovery Way, facing Interstate 95,” Keiser explained. “Being on I-95 was important since there is access from the north and the south, so it is easier for our students to get to the new campus.”

    The need mirrors program growth.

    Leslie Kristof is the president of Keiser University’s Port St. Lucie campus.

    The new building, which has a capacity of 1,200 students, houses 670 students currently.

    “We have 48 classrooms, including 16 different labs, plus faculty and administrative offices,” Kristof said.”Our most well-known programs are allied health and nursing, with dietetics and nursing expanding.

    “Other programs have the opportunity for growth, including forensic investigation and criminal justice, graphic arts and video games, business administration, accounting and integrated marketing and communications,” she explained. “We’re exploring new programs and identifying community needs.”

    Keiser said that students on the Port St. Lucie campus are older adults, not the typical 18-year-olds who enter college.

    Veterans of the military enrolling

    “The Port St. Lucie campus and other non-traditional campuses offer career-focused programs, and that attracts students between the ages of 25 and 35, including a significant number of military veterans who have served in the Middle East,” Keiser ein stated.

    “Because it is our business, we have designed our courses specifically for the kind of student. We offer one course at each time and arrange the students to ensure they can take the courses they require within their schedule,” Keiser said. “The types of students we teach could be exhausted by the time they get to the class.

    “We are also very strict with our dress code and attendance requirements because our programs are designed for them to move into the professional environment following graduation,” He said.

    Kristof said that the proximity to Traditional Medical Center and Torrey Pines could provide additional possibilities available to Keiser university students.

    “We have a relationship with Tradition Medical Center,” she explained, “and we’re talking about how we can offer clinical sites to our students. We’re also trying to establish a relationship with Torrey Pines, as it’s among our neighbouring institutions.”

    Engaged in community

    Keiser noted that any of the more significant aspects of the college is its commitment to providing the necessary education to the communities in which campuses are situated.

    “We are committed to the Treasure Coast,” Keiser explained. “We regularly meet with community leaders in the area to find out their requirements, and we also include local business and community members on our advisory boards. Even though we’ve experienced some rough times with the economic downturn, we’d like to play a key part on our Treasure Coast to help businesses and other industries in the region.”

    Keiser University Student Takes Off In 2022’s State Of Port Address.

    Lyndee Lenegar is a California native who relocated to Florida after joining the military when she was 17. She served in Jacksonville as an Air Crewman with the Naval Forces for approximately six years. When she finished her service in the Navy, Linegar was aware that she wanted to pursue a degree in Transportation and Logistics, given her previous experience. However, she still needed to decide which route to follow. She earned an associate degree at a university in the area. She then chose Keiser University Jacksonville to officially finish the Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration – Transportation and Logistics that she aims to receive in August this year.

    With the assistance of Dr Jeremy Smith, a professor at Keiser Jacksonville, Linegar landed a full-time employment contract for TOTE Maritime Jacksonville. This well-known national carrier manages logistical and shipping requirements via shipping by sea. Since starting at their office about six months ago, the employee claims that she’s seen lessons learned in the classroom (such as business communication and ethics) take on the real world.

    “I think it’s great,” Lenegar told reporters. “It furthered my love and appreciation for the transportation industry.”

    Linegar is also President of Keiser’s University of Jacksonville’s student section that is part of the Propeller Club, which she was a candidate for at the suggestion of Dr Smith. The club was dormant for several months because of the pandemic. Now, thanks to Lenegar’s assistance as president, the club is back to its previous splendour.

    “I knew I had a lot to offer, being in the industry already and having prior [club board] experience,” she declared.

    In the early months of March, Linegar, along with the club’s vice president, represented Keiser University at the 2022 State of Port address, the annual gathering that sees members of the Jacksonville Propeller Club come together to discuss growth and plans for the industry over the coming year. This year, the Jacksonville Propeller Club is unique in the international division of taking on two ports for students instead of only one. The student ports are institutions that more prominent Propeller Club divisions select as partners and use students to volunteer for events and activities. The students were at Keiser University and the University of North Florida this year.

    Keiser University in Jacksonville was given a check $5,000 of $5,000 from Propeller Club Jacksonville, which could be used as part of a scholarship that will help students in need in the coming Transportation and Logistics degree programs or to purchase new equipment in Keiser’s Transportation and Logistics program itself.

    The Campus president Lisamarie Winslow accepted the check on behalf of the university. She declares she is proud to see students working tirelessly for their Propeller Club. Keiser University is the only university or college that was awarded a grant.

    Shortly, Keiser University Jacksonville is eager to establish a partnership together with Jacksonville Propeller Club, and student Lyndee Lenegar is excited to putting her diploma to work in TOTE Maritime.

    Keiser University is a private non-profit, independent university that serves over 20,000 students across 21 Florida campuses, online and on two international websites. In 1977, the university was founded by Chancellor Arthur Keiser, PhD, and Evelyn Keiser. Keiser University has over 100-degree programs, ranging from the associate to doctoral levels. Keiser University is a designated Hispanic-Serving Institution and is part of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and was placed in the top tier. 5 . in the U.S. in Social Mobility by U.S. News And World Report in 2022.
