Get Connected with Other VeteransTransitioning from the military to college can be a stressful change, a real culture shock.
Students might miss the network of support found in the military community. They might feel like outsiders or become frustrated with their new environment. By engaging in on-campus activities or in the community, veteran students build and expand their social and professional network, helping them succeed in their academic and personal life. Join us at CCBC!
