How We Create a Positive Culture at Onondaga and Why It’s Important to Us

When choosing a school, you should be looking at the culture they maintain on campus. A school’s culture are the things that are important and what the overall feeling is like at that school. At Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage, we understand the importance of school culture. We know that it can make a difference in the quality of our students’ education.

Because culture can play such a big role in the way our students feel about their educational experience, we do what we can to build a positive one.

Here’s some of the things we do at OSTM to build a culture of caring:

Time to Have Fun

What we do is a blast! We love to see our students and staff members have fun, joke around, and be themselves. We encourage our students and instructors to create a fun atmosphere. It’s an important ingredient in creating a culture where students can feel comfortable in their surroundings.

Reach Out

At OSTM we make reaching out and helping others an integral piece of our culture. We strive to give our students ample opportunity to help and serve others not only in school but in the communities that our campuses are part of.

Why do we think that helping others is an important factor in school culture?

One reason is to help our students give back and to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. These things are important to us as a school and we want to pass that onto our students. We’ve noticed that when our students get a chance to help others, it almost always makes them more grateful and humble. It also gets them excited to continue being a source of positivity after they graduate.
