Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 08, 2011
Drexel University Online, a top-ranked virtual division of Drexel University with over 100 different online programs, is committed to helping service men and women make the most out of their military benefits, enabling Soldiers to further their education.
Often, military men and woman aren’t aware of the educational opportunities that are available and weighing these options can be difficult. That’s where Gene Clark from Drexel University Online comes in. As a former service member, Clark can speak to the military about what educational benefits they are eligible for. At Drexel, Clark is the Military Benefits Counselor and has been working hand-in-hand with Soldiers to help guide them in best utilizing their benefits.
“At Drexel, we have a staff of experts to work with both active duty and veteran students to aid in the enrollment and even academic process, helping Soldiers and their families take advantage of their tuition benefits to the fullest extent,” said Gene Clark, Military Benefits Counselor at Drexel University Online. “As a former service member, Drexel’s commitment to the military both on and off-campus is absolutely unprecedented today.”
Drexel University Online is also creating a microsite tailored for veterans, active duty Soldiers and reservists. This site, which is expected to launch in 2012, will help service members speak with experts like Clark, access information regarding their benefits, and find the programs that work for them.
The University will also be opening and dedicating a lounge in the Drexel Armory to salute our nation’s veterans and celebrate the institutions commitment to today’s student veterans. On Veterans Day, Friday, November 11 at 4pm, the University will hold a ceremony and ribbon cutting of a student lounge that will enable the Drexel Veterans Association to study, network and host programs and events.
