Student Veterans Return To Classes at MU
COLUMBIA - An event designed to ease the transition from the military back to school brought together new and old veterans on the University of Missouri campus Saturday.
About 80 people attended the Mizzou Student Veterans Association's annual barbecue at Peace Park.
Kevin Jones, President of the MU Student Veterans Association, says he hopes the event will help students make the transition from the military back into school.
"The main purpose is to pretty much link up veterans. Possibly current veterans [will] be a mentor to incoming veteran students, and to, you know, just have a really good time," Jones said.
MSVA gives incoming students campus tours and helps with any questions they have about their new transition into civilian life.
