Landfall Foundation Grant Supports CFCC Student Veterans

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Wilmington, NC – With a donation of $3,102, the Landfall Foundation sponsored an initiative to purchase laptop computers for use by student veterans at Cape Fear Community College. CFCC’s Veterans Affairs Center was established three years ago to support the degree and program completion requirements of all military-affiliated students and student veterans. The funds received from the Landfall Foundation will allow CFCC’s student veterans to complete curriculum coursework on laptop computers in the Veterans Center. The convenience of working among their peers helps student veterans to feel more comfortable studying and completing their academic assignments.

Over the last five years, more than 700 student veterans have either graduated or completed a certificate program at CFCC. In fact, the college enrolls well over 700 student veterans each semester. CFCC’s Veterans Center provides resources to help ease veterans’ transition to college and enhance their educational experiences.
