USF signs GI Bill

Honorable Patrick Dunne, the VA’s Under Secretary for Benefits, and USF President Judy Genshaft sign the GI Bill on Thursday in the rotunda of the C.W. Bill Young Hall. USF is the nation’s first university to join the Department of Veteran Affairs to assist troops who enroll beginning this fall. The GI Bill helps troops pay for tuition and other student fees including housing and books.

More than 800 USF students receive veteran’s benefits. Robert Sullins, dean of undergraduate admissions, told the Oracle in May that he expects the number to grow in the fall.

“This is a special group of people who have served this country and served us well,” Sullins said. “We’ve got an obligation to do the best we can do to serve them when they come here.”
