Military Career Resources

Proudly supporting students as they consider and embark on careers in the military

We are proud many of our graduates have gone on to careers in the military, either as enlisted soldiers or on to one of our nation’s military academies. As a school in close proximity to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, we honor our military as we always have a number of students from military families attending.

The Department of College Career Counseling supports students and their families when they consider and then embark on this path. In this section we offer resources and links that will assist.
