FORDHAM VETERANS WRITING WORKSHOPS
The Veterans Writing Workshop gives veterans the tools and confidence they need to bring their stories to life. Veterans meet once a week for ten weeks for valuable peer support and feedback.
If you are a veteran interested in finding a supportive community of writers to help you tell your story, we encourage you to join us. David Surface, founder and instructor, has designed and led writing programs in public schools, mental health centers, homeless programs, and other community settings for twenty years. You need not be an employee or student at Fordham University to join us - all veterans are welcomed! To register for the free workshops email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (866) 933-7780.

BARNES AND NOBLE: ASSISTING STUDENT-VETERANS TO GET OFF TO A GOOD START
In recognition of processing backlogs at the Veterans Administration, and the resultant difficulties which can be experienced by newly-admitted student-veterans when book stipends are delayed, the Barnes & Noble Bookstores at the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center Campuses will provide a deferred payment option for student-veterans in their first term of study at Fordham. A newly-enrolled Fordham student-veteran who has not yet received the VA Book Stipend in time for the start of classes may request deferred payment approval at the Bookstore for books and supplies necessary for the first term of study (other than Summer terms). A copy of his/her VA Certificate of Eligibility for education benefits, and a printout of the courses in which he/she has enrolled for the upcoming term must be presented at the Bookstore at the time of purchase. This privilege does not extend to other items (clothing, sourvenirs, toiletries, etc.), will in no case exceed $500, and is not available for subsequent terms. Payment in full is expected no later than eight weeks after the start of the term. New student-veterans so affected may communicate directly with the General Manager, Mr. Jason Figueroa at email@example.com
