The Metropolitan College at Johnson C. Smith University supports non-traditional students who want to earn a college degree. The institution is also the home of the new support hub for student veterans attending Johnson C. Smith University (JCSU).
George Curtis is a veteran of the U.S. Army, and a graduate of JCSU. Curtis considers the Student Veterans Association a helpful resource for student veterans interested in gaining higher education.
Curtis earned a degree in psychology from JCSU, as a traditional student. Curtis said, “I felt like I missed out on something by not going to college.” Curtis joined the U.S. Army as a young man and dedicated 20 years of service to the military.
When Curtis retired from the military he went back to school and earned a computer science degree from ECPI, then focused on his degree from JCSU. Curtis said,
“I also wanted to set an example for my kids, I thought if they saw me doing it at my age they would think there is no problem for them to go to college.”
