BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash is expanding services and outreach to veterans who are interested in starting or continuing their pursuit of a college degree.
David Frese is the new Coordinator of Veteran Student Affairs for UC Blue Ash. This is a new position that was created to assist the growing number of military veterans who are returning from service and going to college. “I help them navigate the admissions process and research whether their military training and experience can be converted into college credits,” said Frese, who also helps veterans apply for educational and medical benefits. He notes that the college credit options come as a surprise to many veterans.
Frese comes into this new role with plenty of experience. He was in the U.S. Army for 21 years before he retired in 2008. Since then he has served as the Veterans/Military Personnel Advisor for UC at the main campus in Clifton.
