Woodbury University has a proud, longstanding tradition of welcoming service members home as they make the transition into civilian life. Veteran students hold a special place here in the Woodbury family especially for having educated Veterans for over 60 years.
While some Woodbury students are living on their own for the first time after graduating from high school, many have real-world experience just like our student veterans. We know our veteran students are already proven leaders and team players with a strong sense of civic responsibility. As such, we rely on our student veterans to serve as role models to fellow classmates and participate as an integral part of our community.
It is our pleasure to serve you and it is our goal to assist you through every stage of the process, from applying and choosing a program, to integrating into campus life.
At Woodbury you will never be alone in your transition. Our Student Veteran Association and Alumni will offer you peer to peer support through a battle buddy system that will help you rally together as you transition into student life at Woodbury.
We partner you with mentors from our growing community of faculty, students and alumni. With our induction into the Student Veterans of America as an official chapter affords us the opportunity to provide a nurturing home where veteran students can thrive academically, socially and within the community at large.
Woodbury University is known for empowering people to do extraordinary things. As a veteran, we understand you have already accomplished extraordinary feats in service to our country. For our veterans, our goal is to foster the cohesion between our veteran leaders and civilian student body, faculty and staff, to achieve a community of excellence. You will always have the guidance and support you need, our Veteran Liaison, Angela Sanna, also a veteran and Woodbury graduate, can answer your questions and aid you in your transition.
