A Message from the Editor

When I think of summer, there are so many things that come to mind - ice cream, beaches, sun, sunscreen, vacations, sunsets, and so much more.  For me, summer means the great outdoors and travel.  Even if you're planning to take classes this summer, I hope you will be able to take a day, weekend or a week within the next couple of months to relax and recharge.  It really helps recharge the body, mind, and soul!

Supporting Walsh College Student Veterans by Adam Anderson

For Veterans returning home and looking for career enhancement, Walsh College provides the unique experiences and necessary support needed for educational success. Annually recognized as a “Veteran Friendly” school, Walsh College has averaged 76 Student Veterans enrolled over the last six semesters. To these Veterans, “Veteran Friendly” is more than just a title: “It’s an appreciation of what we have done for freedom and sacrifice we have made for our country,” said Sergeant Allen D’Aoust, Michigan National Guard and Dual MBA/MSF student.

Read more on this story and about the Veteran Giving Campaign that goes until July 5.
