VIDEO: Veterans Resource Center a new home base for Mines student veterans
Colorado School of Mines recently opened a new Veterans Resource Center to serve student veterans on campus.
Michael Knight, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and president of the Mines Veterans Alliance, shares some of the resources available. Knight is pursuing a PhD in materials science, working under Professor Ivar Reimanis on advanced ceramic materials for fuel cells.
"My one piece for advice for student veterans who are just starting at Mines would be to go above and beyond. Don't just show up for classes and do classes—actually interact with other students," Knight said. "Having a community is hugely important to success."
