East Carolina University (ECU) used an NEH grant to develop a summer boot camp to help veterans prepare for college life. This program arose out of a need identified by the student veteran office on campus. Specifically, student veterans felt out of place on a campus with predominantly typical-age students and needed support to adjust to college. Centered around the theme of homecoming in Homer’s Odyssey, this program offers veterans the chance to reflect on their experiences, familiarize themselves with the college environment, develop a cohort, and demonstrate their expertise - setting them up for success on the college campus.
