Penn State Left Out of Vet Grant Program

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education,

The Wal-Mart Foundation and the American Council on Education today identified 20 colleges as recipients of Success for Vets Grants, meant to help them develop innovative ways to help veterans make the transition from military service to college.

As you might have guessed from the headline, Penn State was not one of those 20 colleges. The grant, a $100,000 award, is intended to help further programs helping veterans transition to the college environment that are already in place.  Penn State, from what I saw on their website, does not have any programs like that. Notable colleges that received the grant include: George Mason University; University of California, Santa Cruz; and Colorado State University.

That being said, I don’t really know what $100,000 will do to “help them develop innovative ways to help veterans”, but that’s why I’m not on the receiving end of the money.

I guess it’s really not a surprise that Penn State didn’t get the grant, if you recall the dustup that occurred over a certain video. Maybe they should work on that…

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
