San Diego State Sets Up Veterans Center

San Diego State is scouting for veterans in much the same way as it scouts for star athletes. Last week a dozen veterans were treated as VIPs as they toured the school. The school has set up a veterans center and is considering military only housing. The veterans center is raising funds for scholarships ($100k donated by Wal-mart alone) and serving the veterans in other ways. If applications by veterans do not meet the standards of grades and classes for admittance, they will be sent to an administrator (a retired Army lieutenant colonel) for review. Read the news story or visit San Diego State’s website.
