PAVE Partner Campus Purdue University has been named one of the best colleges in the country for military veterans by College Consensus. “I was really happy to see how they come up with their rankings,” said Jamie Richards, director of the Purdue Veterans Success Center. “And then seeing that a lot of our peer institutions in the Big Ten are in there as well was pretty cool.”
The Veterans Success Center located in the Purdue Memorial Union provides resources and support for veteran students and those still serving in the military, as well as their dependents as they navigate available financial benefits and becoming part of the campus community.
“After applying to Purdue and getting in touch with people at the center, PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veteran Education) reached out to me and said, ‘This is what we are, this is what we do. Can we help you?’” said Stephani Jo Milette, Air Force veteran and Purdue horticulture student. “It was amazing knowing that there was someone who was going to help me here.”
