Get to Know Your Veterans

The Military and Veterans Resource Center is here to help you better understand and relate to student veterans, military personnel and their families. Unlike traditional students, veteran students are typically older and face challenges similar to those of adult and non-traditional students, but with the added dimension that comes with being a veteran. They may have different stressors than their younger peers. Veterans face challenges such as adjusting to life as a student after several years away, taking on a full college course load while meeting the adult obligations of providing for a family, and coping with the mental stresses and physical wounds of combat service. However, they also bring with them unique and rich experiences to contribute to the classroom.
