Initially I was nervous to leave the military and go back to school as a Navy veteran. However, my professors have been amazing and they have made the transition to civilian life easy. Meeting other veteran and active duty students on campus was awesome, and we often met for alternative military chapels to talk about how we all shared the same bond. Northwestern valued my service and I was able to transfer a lot of credits toward my degree. My technical background in air traffic control even helped me to think critically and ask questions in all of my classes.
