Abstract

This holistic single-case study explores the experiences of 54 student veterans who participated in a veterans transition seminar course at a regional, comprehensive institution in the Mountain West. Employing the Harris, Myhill, and Walker (2012) Thriving Transition Cycle as a framework for the inquiry, the study examines participants’ experiences separating from the military, encountering the college and classroom environment associated with the transition seminar course, adjusting to the college student role, and their newfound stability as college students. Implications for student affairs practitioners and faculty, as well as additional research areas, are discussed.
