A Message from Larry Goodwin, President
Military veterans are an under-represented group in American higher education. I am glad that The College of St. Scholastica is doing its best to right that wrong, through programs and services including the Yellow Ribbon campaign and the Veterans Resource Center.
As a veteran myself, I know that making the transition from soldier to student can be difficult. At the same time, I know that vets do well in college. Certainly, our campus has benefitted greatly from the maturity, discipline and life wisdom that veterans bring to our learning community.
Best of luck to you in your own educational plans.
The College of St. Scholastica
