Tomorrow, Friday November 11th is Veteran’s Day. This date marked the end of the First World War in 1918, and was first commemorated as Armistice Day in 1919. On the occasion, President Wilson prescribed that the day, “will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.”
As part of the effort to honor and support our veterans, Touro College has developed a Veteran’s Program dedicated to helping servicemen and women “best utilize your hard earned skills and military experience toward achieving your educational and career goals.” Staff members can help you navigate VA, DoD, and other tuition assistance benefits. Touro also offers several support programs to help students attain college prerequisites or set a path towards graduate and professional degrees. A resource list compiled by the Veteran’s department makes it easy to get in touch with outside support systems, such as peer support organizations and social services.
