Why Recruit Veterans
Military life is a great preparation tool for success in all walks of life, especially college. Veterans are dedicated, hardworking and disciplined individuals who are goal-oriented and driven to succeed. Veterans also bring a diversity to our campus which provides an opportunity for other students to learn from them.
