Additional Information
Student veterans on campus present with an array of specific challenges that differ from "typical" college students, such as specific reintegration and mental health issues. In addition, student veterans enter college with a different worldview and as a result, can sometimes feel ostracized and alone in the campus atmosphere. This session will consist of seminar-style learning, sprinkled with some activities and discussion, in order for attendees to really get a sense of the military culture, our student veterans, and what can be done to assist this specific population on campus. Possible topics to discussion include: military culture, reintegration, campus challenges, physical and psychological health, and veteran advantages.
