The College of Saint Rose is home to student veterans hailing from all branches of the military. Not only has Saint Rose been named to the Military Friendly School List for five consecutive years, but more importantly, Saint Rose is committed to recognizing and building upon the diverse skills, experiences and perspectives of our veteran students. We value the unique contribution that veterans bring to our campus, and we will work to ensure your transition meets its full potential.

Students drop in to relax, study or bond

“The resources Saint Rose has for its veteran students have been a tremendous help. Attending a truly Vet friendly school has set my mind at ease and I realize I made the right choice by transferring here. The Veteran Student Association has welcomed me into their group and it’s nice to know I’m not alone on campus. The cookout was a blast, and I can already tell I’m going to enjoy my time here at Saint Rose and look forward to getting involved in the campus community alongside fellow veterans. Vets will have a hard time choosing any other school but Saint Rose.”
