On the national stage

Our commitment to honor and support our active duty and veteran students, faculty and staff was featured on "Military Makeover: Operation Career," which debuted on the Lifetime network on June 24. The nationally broadcast show highlighted Alex Hartman '19, Shamar Farmer '18 and Jason Burke, director of veteran and military affairs, and showed how their military experiences have led them to success at Quinnipiac. The segment will continue to air nationally throughout the summer.

Jason Burke

Executive Director of Veteran and Military Affairs

"The Military Times does a very comprehensive survey to ensure their list of best schools for veterans reflects universities that offer the best chance for success of these non-traditional students. Quinnipiac ranks very well because of the team effort that supports our veterans not only on campus but also within the Connecticut VA system. We also have a very active Student Veterans Organization that gets additional outside campus support via the Student Veterans of America."
