TU reaching out to Afghan, Iraqi war veterans

Open house to help vets explore their higher-education options

 

TOWSON, Md. ( Feb. 10, 2006)–Towson University is extending a helping hand to a special group of potential students: men and women leaving the armed forces who are considering college, but unsure where to go, what to study or how to finance their educations.

Operation Service to Scholarship is an open house/college fair designed especially for Afghan and Iraqi war veterans. In addition to getting information about TU, they’ll be able to talk to representatives from UMBC, Villa Julie College, Coppin State University, Baltimore City Community College, The Community College of Baltimore County, Baltimore International College (School of Culinary Arts, Business and Management), TESST College of Technology and others. 

Tracy Miller, the TU academic adviser who’s coordinating the event, says many veterans could use some guidance. “We want to let them know what college can do for them, help them define their goals and match them to the school that’s best suited for them,” she says.

It doesn’t matter which branch of the service they were in, she adds. “Any vet who wants to further his or her education is welcome to come and explore the options.”
