On Friday February 10th Posse Veteran Scholars, students and faculty boarded a school bus for the Posse plus retreat. Posse started its veterans’ program in 2012, and this is the initiative’s third year at Wesleyan, now with a total of 32 veterans studying on campus. The Posse Plus retreat is an annual event, and is open to anyone interested in engaging in a dialogue with Wesleyan’s Posse Scholars.

This is the second installment of a series of interviews getting to know the veterans in the Posse program, which helps bring veterans to schools like Wesleyan and Vassar. You can read the first installment here. The following interviews have been edited for clarity.

Ryan Poulter ’18 was kind enough to come all the way to SciLi on a Sunday to sit down for an interview with Dasha and answer some questions about his experiences as a veteran at Wes.
