The University of Arizona this month hosted military veterans, as part of the national Warrior-Scholar Project.

It’s described as a college-prep academic boot camp for enlisted military vets who want to go back to college. The group partners with 12 universities across the country, including U of A.

"Surprisingly many of the challenges that enlisted veterans face are things that you wouldn't really think about off the top of you hear," said Sid Ellington, the executive director of the Warrior-Scholar Project. "Time management is a big one."
