As soon as I came to Rutgers and fellow students knew I was a Veteran, they greeted me and showed me around the campus and helped me with anything and everything I needed. I then worked for Fred Davis, in the Office of Veterans Affairs, and what a great opportunity that was! Not only could I now give back that initial greeting to everyone that came to the office, but I was more connected to all the Veterans in the school. It also was a great opportunity to get involved with other clubs in the school, since the Student Veterans club made the transition so easy. I really enjoyed taking part in all the activities, such as the Senior Veteran Living Center visits and trips and bake sales. Rutgers is a very Veteran friendly school and Fred Davis is always there for Veterans, no matter what the need. Also having studied abroad, Fred Davis and the workers of the Office of Veterans Affairs made the whole process a lot easier. They were a reliable source of communication while abroad, and helped me solve many issues that arose with studying abroad. I do not know what I would have done without this office even during my year away from Rutgers. It has truly been fantastic having the Office of Veterans Affairs as a resource at Rutgers Camden!
