It’s just past one o’clock on Tuesday afternoon at CCV Newport. Students are at work in the Learning Center, instructors are beginning the day’s lessons, and staff goes about handling the logistics of day-to-day life at the College. This would be a typical day at the center, save for what’s going on in the corner classroom that looks out over Lake Memphremagog.
CCV Resource Advisor for Veterans Chara Vincelette stood before a whiteboard, facing the class: “What are some of the challenges you’ve faced as a student?”
In February CCV piloted a new 1-credit seminar designed to help veterans transition from military to college life.
