Every year hundreds of thousands of service members leave the military for civilian life. As part of this transition, many enroll in a postsecondary education program. The transition from a highly structured military environment to a college or university can be overwhelming for veterans, who may confront a variety of barriers in their quest to earn a degree.

Drawing on decades of experience in the military and higher education, Life During College: The Veteran’s Guide to Success, provides straightforward guidance for veterans looking to earn a degree. This book discusses the many issues that transitioning veterans are likely to encounter as students, including:

  • The difference between military and college culture
  • Developing effective, efficient study habits
  • Connecting with your school
  • Managing finances and maximizing benefits
  • Cultivating the skills employers are seeking
  • Devising a plan that is practical and engaging

“This book is fantastic for veterans and military members, and it should be by their side as they arrive on campus! Powerful and easy to follow, it will prove a valuable tool as veterans transition to their new mission of succeeding academically, graduating, and launching a new career.”
Michael W. Carrell, Colonel, USAF (Ret) – Assistant Provost and Director of Military and Veterans Services, The Ohio State University

“This book provides everything a veteran needs to know about going to college, and will answer many questions before they’re asked. Whether looking for tips on engaging with instructors or students in the classroom, preparing for exams, writing a paper, creating a budget, or navigating the complex higher education landscape, this book is an indispensable resource.”
Jean Driscoll – 8-time Boston Marathon Champion & member of the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame

“I wish this book was available when I was a student. The topics are timely, easy to read, and cut to the core of what veterans and military students face while attending college.”
Jamie Richards – Senior Assistant Director, Military Veteran & Nontraditional Student Programs, Purdue University

“The resources provided in this book will help returning service members pave a path to graduation and gain meaningful employment. It’s the transition handbook for today’s warrior scholar!”
Rodrigo Garcia – Chairman, Student Veterans of America

    This is the best book on the market for veterans. It’s obviously written by someone who understands the military and what a new student veteran needs to know. It’s easy to read and the information is straightforward and to the point. I highly recommend this book and wish they had something like this available when I started college many years ago.
