Veterans and Nontraditional Student Center open house

The Veteran and Nontraditional Student Center is always an engaging place at UW-Superior, but this week two special visitors dropped by to learn more about what director Carl Huber and his staff have been building.

Lt. Col. Karl Fischbach along with Major Mark Goehring, recruiting Flight Commander attended a one year anniversary open house and had a tour of the UW-Superior campus. They were able to meet students and staff during their trip and said they enjoyed the experience.

UW-Superior now has 5 cadets on campus this fall and they train with other cadets from around the Twin Ports region. They include CSS, UMD and Lake Superior College. It has been a very popular program in the past at UW-Superior. Lt. Col. Fischbach said, "Building our cross-town relationships and core of cadets is important. We typically get the best students who are going to become cadets that will produce the best second lieutenants in the Air Force and typically our crosstown universities provide that."

Mark Goehring, Recruiting Flight Commander was impressed with what he saw here at UW-Superior as well. "This is huge, huge help to have a veteran's and nontraditional center and working with Carl on expanding the ROTC program, he's been a big, big help for me. I love being here and working with Carl."

The school for the 4th straight year earned a Military Friendly School honor for 2014.

Lt. Col. Fischbach thought that designation as a Military Friendly School will help for the future. "Having a center like this for our vets that are transitioning to civilian live and potentially joining the officer's core is huge. Having Carl here will help that mission."
