For the weekly Campus Highlight feature, I usually focus on students at one particular campus. In honor of Veterans Day, however, I'm choosing this week to highlight an admirable, noteworthy, and often overlooked group of college students: student veterans.
There are a surprisingly high number of current college students who are currently involved with the military (think those in ROTC programs or at the service academies) as well as those who have finished their service and are now back in school. Today, I honor and thank all of you who have served, are serving, or will someday serve in America's armed forces. You make my life and my country better and I am grateful for all you sacrifice. Thank you!
(Each Monday during the academic year, I feature a "Campus Highlight": a unique, interesting, and noteworthy student organization, program, or initiative that demonstrates the amazing things college students do each and every day across the country.)
