Berkeley College Celebrates Veterans Day In Woodland Park



Berkeley College student veteran Ryan Davenport, 28, of Paterson recites the Soldier’s Creed at the beginning of his address to the crowd gathered in the Renaissance Hall Atrium at Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ, to celebrate Veterans Day today.  During his time in Iraq as a U.S. Army soldier, he drove a truck.

Now he is beginning to live his dreams by earning a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Management with a minor in International Business. While this marks the start of a new life for Mr. Davenport, he knows he will always live by the Soldier’s Creed because that changed his life forever. 

 Mr. Davenport described his military experience as “the most accomplished thing I ever did,” as he told how it changed his life. “You’re a role model to your community,” he said. “You’re a hero to your family.” The Soldier’s Creed became the backbone of Mr. Davenport’s life as he adjusted to civilian life and continues on his life’s journey.


The Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs (OMVA) began its celebration of Veterans Day on Monday, November 10, at its Woodland Park, NJ, location.  Speakers included (L to R) Richard Robitaille, EdD, Assistant Vice President, OMVA; student veteran Ryan Davenport, Fashion Merchandising and Management, minor in International Business, Class of 2016; Dario A. Cortes, PhD, President of Berkeley College; and Maja Johnson, Coordinator, OMVA. “At Berkeley, we are fortunate to have more than 500 students, as well as faculty and associates throughout our system, who have served in the military,” said Dr. Cortes. “We are here to help these veteran and military students prepare and be successful in their professional civilian careers.”

This year Berkeley College was ranked among the Best Online Programs for Veterans byU.S. News and World Report; named to the Best for Vets Four-Year Schools by Military Times magazine; and recognized as a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs and Military Advanced Education for the fifth consecutive year.
