Professor Barbara Mujica Publishes article: Veterans: Make Your Voices Heard on Campus
Professor Barbara Mujica, GUSVA Advisor, has published a new article in the Huffington Post titled "Veterans: Make Your Voices Heard on Campus". Below is a excerpt from the article:

"It's no better than after Vietnam," wrote another.
A medical student complained that her pacifist professor constantly berated her in front of classmates for her military service. "I can't succeed in this class!" she said.
