A Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) study in September 2014 reported that Boston had the eighth-highest cost of living in the country.
While at least the livability of Boston for veterans is in question, Spahn said Northeastern does an excellent job caring for its veterans, citing the university’s 82 percent veteran graduation rate compared to approximately 50 percent nationwide.
“Our employment is huge,” Spahn said. “Veterans get placed all around the country doing research, med schools, finance, business—everything. And they’re getting hired as managers.”
This is particularly important for veterans between 18 and 24 years old — the unemployment rate for this demographic was as high as 30.2 percent in 2011, nearly twice that of civilians of the same age bracket, according to a 2012 Prudential report on the challenges of veteran readjustment to civilian life. The same report conducted a survey in which 69 percent of veterans listed finding a job, as a civilian, as their greatest challenge when returning from service.
Spahn said other schools should follow the lead of Northeastern, which has the most veterans of any private college or university in the state. Northeastern provides free parking for veterans and covers the remainder of textbook costs that the GI Bill only partially does, Spahn said.
The university maintains a Center for the Advancement of Veterans and Service members, which works to make sure the veterans enrolled at Northeastern can graduate and find a job, in addition to the on-campus VFW post at Northeastern.
“I chose Northeastern because of its veteran services. I knew that it had a big veteran community,” Spahn said. “Knowing that you’re not going to stick out and be alone is important.”
