Boots to Books: The transition from military life to college life

Penn State Berks Veterans Discussion Panel

Wednesday, November 13th

1:00 p.m.

Perkins Student Center Auditorium


Penn State Berks will be hosting a Veterans Discussion Panel to honor our veterans and enlisted individuals, to acknowledge their sacrifices and to discuss the challenges student veterans face when they return to school after service. Chancellor Dr. Keith Hillkirk will provide the opening remarks. Students Faculty & Staff Veterans will describe their experiences in the military during the dec-ade of war before and after 9/11, and their return to civilian life as students in higher education. Like many returning veterans, they find a divide between themselves and the greater population, for whom the wars often feel remote.

All members of the Penn State Berks community are encouraged to attend.
