Resources for Friends and Family Members

Fact:

Almost 75% of 18-29 year olds personally know someone who has served in Iraq or Afghanistan. As these brave veterans come home, it is important that we all do our part to help in their transition back into civilian life, especially since many of these veterans will be starting or returning to college for the first time. Despite the sacrifices they have made, these veterans aren't looking for special treatment -- they just want the opportunity to do well as students and have a good experience. 

Learn about the struggles of a Student Veteran:

From combat to college eight Student Veterans share their stories of how they were able to overcome their most challenging obstacles and become successful college students.
