Own Your Journey Conversation: What It Means to Be A Veteran at CU Boulder

Event has passed.

Get the inside scoop on what it takes to accelerate your degree from a veteran’s perspective.

In this 20-min Own Your Journey conversation, we’ll chat with Tim Hawkins, an Army veteran who served as a medic. Inspired to continue helping others, he’s using the GI Bill to gather his Pre-Nursing prerequisites with a goal of enrolling in a Nursing program. With the help of flexible on-campus and online classes, Tim is on track to complete his prerequisites in just two years.

Tim will be sharing his strategies on managing an accelerated course load, so post your questions using the Facebook link above.
