the ub community writes thank you messages to veterans

Serving those who've served.

You already know about the "real world." And you know what it means to fulfill a commitment. Now you're focused on what's next in your career and in your life.

The University of Baltimore recognizes the important strengths that military and veteran students contribute to our campus. We also recognize the distinct challenges you face. That's why we're here to serve you.

  • We're backed by a million-dollar commitment. The Bob Parsons Veterans Center was established with a whole lot of support from its namesake donor, alumnus and Marine Corps veteran Bob Parsons, who has a vision to turn UB into a national model for serving veteran students.
  • We're more than just a nameplate on a door. Our veterans center is a fully staffed campus space where you can connect with military and veteran resources and students. Inside, you'll find computer labs, a kitchenette and a lounge.
  • We make it our mission to find you benefits. Our staff understands the ins and outs of military and veteran transcripts and education benefits. We’ll evaluate your situation and determine the most efficient—and the most cost-effective—way for you to earn your degree.
  • We want you to get involved. Our two military student groups are more than 110 members strong and growing. We also offer peer mentoring and special recognition events during the week of Veterans Day. Learn more about veteran-focused programs and services on campus.

    “My experience with UB has been excellent. There are many clubs as well as student activities one can join. UB also welcomes veteran students through The Bob Parsons Veterans Center. Think of it as a USO on campus, a home away from home.”

    “UB has shown me different ways to approach exams or simply everyday life as a college student as opposed to tackling my classes on a military mindset. I believe military standards will always be within me, but UB has also taught me how to live within the civilian community again.”

    "I have made the transition from military to civilian life. I know how hard it can be to navigate college life for the first time, especially as a veteran. I hope to help ease the burden for veteran students and guide them so they can be successful and enjoy their time here at UB."
