Thoughts from Navy Veteran/OSU Alumnus Jon Dixon '17 - I have volunteered my time both through the Ohio State Veteran network as well as other channels of mentorship offered for Veterans of every age. During my time after separation, I was the benefactor of mentorship from many caring people and one of the mentors even made a connection to a senior leader at the company I work today. Leveraging these relationships that are made over different seasons within your life & career can open doors that you did not realize existed.
Currently, the Major Lawrence Miller Veteran Community Advocate Program Campus Mentorship Opportunity is designed to connect Veteran and Military associated undergraduate students that plan on pursuing a graduate, professional or similar type of degree, with a Veteran or Military associated Graduate student, Faculty member, or campus professional as their mentor. Our goal is to help Veteran and Military undergraduate students become more successful in pursuing higher degrees and educational accomplishments by providing the experience and insight of those who have been able to successfully navigate higher levels of education and professionalism.
