The VETS course is designed for active duty military, veterans, and dependents who are beginning their college lives at Evergreen. The goal is to assure that the student will get the most out of his or her educational experience, and the focus is on the transition from deployment to post deployment life. We will explore skills for success in academics, work, home life, and other settings; strategies for balancing work, family, and educational demands; and techniques for managing the stress related to military service and combat. We will reflect on theories and skills related to community-building and interpersonal relations. Students will have the option to connect with an Evergreen Veteran Mentor, and each student will leave with a toolbox of skills for success at Evergreen and beyond.
