Mississippi State University’s Green Zone initiative completed its fall semester’s training program for faculty and staff to become mentors to student veterans.

The Green Zone is a program Mississippi State kicked off in the fall of 2012 and is funded through a grant by the Aurora Foundation. There are seven Green Zone programs in the nation, and each initiative hopes to increase retention and graduation rates among student veterans by offering support for the veterans as they transition to college.
