Thank you for your service

Transitioning back into civilian life can feel challenging and overwhelming. You'll feel a strong sense of community and support working with the veteran assistance team at Linfield University. We've had the privilege of helping many active duty, reserve, veterans, spouses and military dependents pursue their educational dreams.

Unwavering Allegiance

With Linfield’s financial efforts, Tyler Bergeron '21 has been able to live out the four years of college he worked for as a United States Marine. “I’m very fortunate and grateful that Linfield is a yellow ribbon school,” he says. “Without that, I wouldn’t have been able to come back.”

Small Town Heroes

While military service affords many the opportunity for higher education, veterans say they often struggle to access resources and find a community on campus. Linfield President Miles K. Davis, a U.S. Navy veteran himself, understands how important it is to extend a hand to students and potential students who might arrive with life experiences very different from an 18-year-old high school graduate.
