We’re traveling all over the country meeting with Student Veterans to understand their experiences with transitioning out of the military and into civilian life and higher education. Student Veterans bring a lot to the table when it comes to environments of higher education. We’re interested in hearing and telling stories of their experience transitioning into education, using the education benefits they’ve earned through their service and what it’s like being a student with Military experience. Here’s a word from Nate about the unique experience of Student Vets:

We’re working with the Department of Veterans Affairs and institutions of higher education all over the country to make the transition to civilian life in higher education easier for Student Veterans like Nate. Learn more about the work we do to support Veterans!
