HOME WITH THE BRAVE
Most Americans are now feeling the effects of COVID-19, but not many are aware of how this crisis is changing a hard-earned moment of recognition and celebration for our nation's veterans, as college graduations across the country have been canceled.
Student Veterans of America (SVA) will be streaming a graduation ceremony for the hundred thousand veterans graduating this year, as well as their families and friends.
Join us on June 12 at 6 p.m. ET on Facebook and the Xfinity X1 Education Channel.
Student veterans have delayed their goals in higher education and career in order to first serve all Americans.
Student veterans tend to enter college later, frequently juggling part- or full-time jobs and families in addition to a full class load.
Student veterans graduate with .40 higher average GPAs than their civilian counterparts.
Women student veterans make up more than half of SVA chapter leaders nationwide.
Nearly two-thirds of student veterans are first generation graduates.
