Strengths And Weaknesses
Veterans have the benefit of having a lot of life experience. Both groups want to succeed. Both groups understand a college degree affords them a better life. They are normally more mature and have learned “life’s lessons” the hard way. They normally have a great work ethic and don’t like to settle for second best. They also know how to prioritize work. They will ask questions to clarify information and instructions.
With all of the changes that will happen in their first months of college, veteran
students may experience substantial emotional ups and downs -- exhilaration at meeting
their new roommate, panic at seeing the first lab assignment, or loneliness if they
haven't heard from family in a while.
