At 59, Ex-Marine/Student Hopes to Help Other Vets

Lorenzo Tuero, freshman communication major and a veteran of the U.S. Marines, decided to start at Emporia State at the age of 59. Being a nontraditional transfer student offers many different obstacles, challenges and opportunities, according to Tuero.

“Next April I’ll be 60 years old,” Tuero said. “I don’t want to say it’s been traumatic…I think it’s been actually challenging and a lot of fun.”
