"When it was time for me to choose which university to attend after my service in the Army, I did some research and found out how accommodating Illinois was to veterans returning to school. With over 400 veteran students at Illinois, it was encouraging to know that there were students in my situation that I could learn from and turn to for help. Since I moved to Urbana-Champaign from California, I have not had a moment of regret. I have made great friends, who also happen to be veterans, and I am preparing to graduate with a degree from one of the most prestigious universities in the country."
