Veteran Student Spotlight: Vanessa Arias

Veteran Student Spotlight: Vanessa Arias  

Vanessa Arias, a Navy veteran in her senior year at UT Dallas, served six years (1998-2004) as a sonar technician STG2 (SW).  She is an active member of the Veteran Student Organization and balances work, college and married life while pursuing her degree in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.  Vanessa says some of the challenges she faced after returning to civilian life included finding resources available to veterans, seeking suitable employment, finding a place to live and identifying an environment that was conducive to studying. She said she relies on the Veteran Services Center as a valuable part of her transition.
