Helping those who have served: considerations for veterans when picking a college
Jamie Schramm’s son and father-in-law served in the United States Marine Corps, so he understands the value of what veterans bring to civilian life after their time in the military is over. As an educator, he sees daily what they bring to college campuses across the country.
“Military veterans have that mindset that they want to serve, they want to help,” says Schramm, the campus executive officer for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s satellite campuses in Sheboygan and Manitowoc. “And sometimes they have to be OK with us helping them, because they are in a new world for them. I find them very hard working, and they want to succeed, and this is another mission to them: Getting a college degree.”
