Incoming students discuss their service and what inspired them to join University community
From a former Green Beret planning to study economics to a Navy linguist interested in human development, a diverse group of veterans will join the University of Chicago community as students this fall through a new partnership.
The University is welcoming 12 students from four branches of the U.S. military as part of the UChicago Posse Veterans program. Through a partnership with the nonprofit Posse Foundation, the students will receive training prior to arriving at UChicago and mentoring while enrolled in the undergraduate College.
