Texas A&M partners with nonprofit to host virtual academic boot camp for student veterans

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX0 – A two-week academic boot camp began Sunday for veterans transitioning from active service to life as college students.

The program is hosted by a nonprofit called Warrior-Scholar Project that’s partnering with Texas A&M and other universities across the country. WSP launched its first boot camp at Yale University in 2012 and is now in its 5th year partnering with Texas A&M.

Transitioning from military service to life at a large four-year university can be tough, even intimidating, for some veterans. It’s why current Texas A&M student veteran Robert Liu signed up for a WSP academic boot camp back in 2018. The WSP says the camps are designed to help student veterans acclimate to civilian life and successfully complete undergraduate programs.
