Veterans at Selective Colleges, 2017 - Opinion

November 10, 2017

Wick Sloane, a 2017 winner of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Governor’s Award for Excellence in Public Service, writes: Yale University this fall has 12 undergraduate veterans, Harvard University six, Princeton University five and Williams College five. That’s 28 undergraduate veterans, short of the 44 students needed to field one offensive and one defensive squad each for a football game. The institutions' cumulative total last year was 18. Progress? I wish I knew. Add the five veterans at Williams’s chief rival, Amherst College? Still 11 to go for a football game.
