Returning veterans today are different from veterans of the past.

They are also different from the majority of students on your campus.

This Magna 20-Minute Mentor 4-pack helps you better serve students who have served their country – at a price and pace both your budget and your schedule can accommodate.

Student veterans have many strengths, including:

  • Career focus
  • Leadership experience
  • Comfort with diversity
  • Extensive real-world knowledge

Yet they face significant challenges:

  • 46 percent of student veterans have had symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder*
  • 35 percent reported severe anxiety*
  • 24 percent experienced severe depression*
  • 7.7 percent have attempted suicide*

(* Statistics from a 2011 national study published in Professional Psychology: Research and Practice.)
