Warrior Scholars work through an intensive analytic workshop at the Humanities Center.

Syracuse University's long tradition of service to the nation’s veterans and military service members continues in the classrooms of the College of Arts and Science. Last month, A&S faculty and staff hosted approximately a dozen military veterans for an intense week of academic workshops through The Warrior-Scholar Project.

The program is designed to help enlisted men and women make successful transitions from the military to campus life. Students are guided through five days of analytical reading and writing courses, along with mentorship to help build confidence as they make a move towards their academic future.
