The blog is part of the school’s effort to participate in the national discussion about the future of
higher education and to provide insight and peer support to both on-campus and online students.
Written by Post University’s students, faculty, and staff, the blog will share their experiences of

who helped build Post University into a leading educator of American military
personnel and their families.
The Post University blog will also feature commentary by students, including
undergraduates, adult learners, online students, alumni, active duty military personnel, and
veterans. In addition, the University is using the blog as a forum to share views on the future of
higher education in America. It will publish posts by and interviews with educators, business
leaders, and policymakers in the Waterbury, Conn., area and around the country. The blog’s
