Stetson University would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your family for your service. We recognize that post-military life can be challenging and if you or your family are looking for a way to invest your hard-earned education benefits, then Stetson University is the community for you.
"The Student Veterans on our DeLand and Gulfport campuses contribute to campus life in many important ways. Perhaps the most important way is in how they model for our younger students the seriousness of purpose and dedication to quality that are hallmarks of a Stetson education. They learned through the mission-based culture of their military service to devote themselves to one another and to the hard work required of successful students. We are proud to have them as part of our learning community."
-Dr. Wendy B. Libby, Ph.D., President of Stetson University
