Veterans Services' mission is to equip each military-affiliated student with the necessary means to succeed at the University of St. Thomas, and beyond, assisting him or her to become "morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good."
St. Thomas salutes veterans and military-affiliated families. In fact, our goal is to be the most military-friendly university in the Upper Midwest. At St. Thomas, you get the resources you need to succeed academically and the career support to thrive after you graduate. Working together, we can be a powerful force for your future. The University of St. Thomas helps you maximize your education benefits. You'll have small classes where professors know your name (and make one-on-one time for you), more than 100 majors to choose from, plus the huge opportunity our career services provide in internships and career mentorships. Get a degree that pulls it weight.
