Why Veterans Choose Saint Michael's
You'll get the support you need
St. Mike's has created a safe space for student veterans to transition from military to student life. Our office helps student veterans in all aspects of their transition, from answering any questions about the G.I. Bill or Yellow Ribbon Benefits, to offering a space to talk about your transition from military to student life. Katherine Orthman, the VA Certifying official, will make sure all VA and Military Affiliated education paperwork is filled out so that students receive their benefits in a timely manner. St. Mike's houses an active chapter of the Student Veterans Association where you can talk to people who have had similar experiences. Finally, the community you'll find on campus is nothing short of supportive, engaged and passionate; your classmates will do their best to make you feel at home on campus as well.
Access to excellent academics
You'll be able to choose from more than 30 majors; each is grounded in a meaningful liberal studies curriculum. That means you're going to learn about our world, past, present and future. You'll study things you'll need four years from now, and things you'll recall 20 years from now. You'll critically examine issues, solve abstract and concrete problems, and think for yourself, while keeping others in mind.
You'll get to experience a great community, in a beautiful location
Saint Michael's College is nestled in one of the most vibrant cities in New England, steeped in the tradition of service to community and faith, and has an extraordinarily tight-knit community. Those that either have served or are still serving in the military and choose St. Mike's will find themselves in a nurturing environment that challenges each student to learn and grow.
You'll have the opportunity to join one of St. Mike's many teams, clubs, or organizations
Whether you're interested in varsity sports, challenging yourself in the great outdoors with our Wilderness Program, volunteering in the community with one of many MOVE programs, or spending time in one of the 40+ clubs and organizations on campus, there will always be something for you to do.
