  • James Galluzzo
    HR Director, SC State Housing
    Retired Lt. Colonel, United States Army

According to Dr. Richards, Northeastern’s 79% graduation rate of Post-9/11 G.I. bill recipients is significantly higher than the national average of just 51%.  And, the University’s track record of Career Services reflects an employment rate of 90% alumni in civilian professions, as compared to the national unemployment rate of 32% for veterans ages 18-24.
