Senator Betty Little visited Paul Smith's College in the Adirondacks on Wednesday, April 3 to meet with veterans attending the school about programs and services important to their academic success.

Several years ago, Senator Little cohosted a forum with the New York State Division of Veterans' Affairs on creating "Veteran Friendly Campuses" to help returning G.I.s successfully make the transition from military service to college campus life.

Paul Smith's College was one of the schools in attendance that day and has become a model campus, offering guidance and support for nearly 40 veterans and active-duty reservists.  In fact, Paul Smith's was named a "Military Friendly School" by G.I. Jobs Magazine for a third consecutive year ranking in the top 15 percent of the 1,800 schools selected from a list of more than 12,000 academic institutions nationwide.
