From The Battlefield To Bookstores: Helping Veterans Transition To College

Article by: Essential Pittsburgh


In 2013, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on the expected influx of members of the military in classrooms under the GI Bill. Our guests experienced that transition first hand. Dwight Boddorf, Marine veteran and director of veterans services at the Community College of Allegheny County, joined fellow former Marine Theo Collins, executive producer of the documentary Project 22, in the studio to address how colleges and universities are accommodating veterans.

Also in the program, a preview of the new CMOA Edward Hopper exhibit and award-winning singer-songwriter  Randy Newman  looks ahead to his performance with the Pittsburgh Symphony.
