On Sunday afternoon, 19 student veterans checked in to Rudder Auditorium for a week that will help give them the tools to succeed as students through the Warrior Scholar Project.
The program is hosted at 15 campuses around the nation, but is new to A&M this year. It began on Aug. 6 and will run until Aug. 11.
Jarrod Romine, campus program coordinator for the Warrior Scholar Project at Texas A&M, was integral to bringing the program to A&M. A Marine Corps veteran with over eight years of service and a political science junior, Romine said he started planning the implementation of the Warrior Scholar Program at A&M in 2015 after transferring from the University of North Carolina.
