Veterans Assistance

"I encourage other vets who may think that they can't go to school to reconsider, because it's not true. If they come to the University of Idaho, and put in the time and effort, the university will support them in all their endeavors. After Iraq, I took a chance on the University of Idaho, and it's made me a better person."

-Chase Clark, 2011 Graduate
