Garrett Mathews

Garrett Mathews is an Air Force Veteran from Klamath Falls Oregon. He shared these thoughts about his service and time at USU.

What is the most positive/useful life lesson you learned from your time in the military?
The most valuable lesson I learned from the military was to be adaptive. They say that in the military the only constant is change. When you are encountering setbacks you are still expected to find a way to get the job done. This skill has proved invaluable for my transfer into civilian and student life.

Major at USU:

How has the VRO improved your experience at USU and/or helped you as a student?
The VRO has helped by providing a community of people that have been or are going through similar circumstances. Being older than the general population of the college can make it difficult to connect, and the little things in college are easy to miss out on if you don't have those people to talk to.

What's your favorite thing about being an Aggie, and why?
My favorite part of being an Aggie is the close relationships I have formed during my time here.
