The Veteran Education Transition Strategies (VETS) course is designed as a place for active duty military, veterans, and dependents to reflect on their educational experiences at Evergreen while also pursing specific academic goals. 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. The focus for winter will be again on the transition from deployment to post deployment life but we will also discuss the reasons around why western nations go to war. Each student will have the option of building a personal journal, learning writing techniques for managing the stress related to military service and combat and build relationship with other veterans on campus. These skills related to community-building and interpersonal relations will be part of a clear segment of gaining Evergreen veteran mentoring skills. Each student will leave with a toolbox of skills for success at Evergreen and beyond.
