College Life Rating

I attended as a military veteran in the Upward Bound Program. There was a department that was devoted to veterans returning to school. We were given assistance through every phase of our attendance. Prior to attending mainstream classes, we took classes with other veterans. The classes and opportunity to be among fellow veterans helped prepare us to be successful in our academic programs. I looked forward to each and every day of classes. I had so much support within the Veterans Center. Campus life was always welcoming. The diversity of the student body made it a great place to learn. I loved the feeling of being among family, all striving towards a common goal. I was an older student, already married with a young daughter. I brought my daughter to school to expose her to college life as an encouragement for her future endeavors. I joined the basketball team and really enjoyed it. I commuted into the city for classes. I lived over an hour away and that limited some of my opportunities to participate in activities. There were still many campus community events available throughout the week. There was always something engaging to do and interesting people making things happen.
