President Oxtoby is quoted in favor of the Yellow Ribbon society in The Student Life. That federal program helps GIs afford more expensive private colleges post graduation. Although I have my doubts about the wisdom of putting more federal money in education, I think it's all in all a worthy program. President Oxtoby should be commended for backing it.
Oxtoby said the Yellow Ribbon Program is beneficial because of the “type of student it would add to campus.”
Veterans would bring to the campus “their life experience and…be a little more mature,” Oxtoby said.
