UT gets attention for serving adult, military studentsNovember 28th, 2012
Adult students often juggle college courses with job and life responsibilities, and The University of Toledo is getting recognition for its efforts to make it easier for nontraditional students to be successful balancing everything.
The College of Adult and Lifelong Learning and its new Office of Adult Student Extended Services in Rocket Hall Room 1800 was recently highlighted in The Blade for “fresh efforts” to serve nontraditional students.
The Associated Press also noted the UT Military Service Center and our new Military and Media Liaison Haraz Ghanbari in its piece Ohio colleges expand services for veterans, that appeared in The Blade, Columbus Dispatch and other newspapers.
The AP article came just after the University hosted a week of events as part of the national Joining Forces Week, which is organized by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden to honor veterans for their service and to work to ensure those returning from the battlefield have the economic and health care they deserve.
Watch some of the local coverage here:
And a group of students in the UT College of Business and Innovation was recognized in a Forbes article for their “remarkable track record picking stocks” with the writer noting, “As I look back at the other schools that competed, nearly all schools had at least one stock with 1 year negative returns. Toledo did not. Toledo is on a streak.”
Indeed we are.
