"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 halmarks of a Stetson education. THey learned through the mission-based culture of their military service to devote themselves to one another an to the hard work required of sucessful students. We are proud to have them as part of our learning community."
