KILLEEN (January 10, 2013) --- Some local veterans got help as they head back to the classroom with a free college prep seminar Thursday at Central Texas College in Killeen.

CTC officials are hoping to help veterans reintegrate back into college life after years away from the classroom.

Veteran Del Re Adams retired from the army last year and said the speakers at the seminar made him feel a little better about being in the classroom with students twenty years younger than him.

"It's almost like in combat sometimes it's just the anxiety of almost facing a relative unknown it's like alright, we all know it's school but there's so much of a gap," Adams said.

Topics tackled on Thursday were research methods, writing skills, and support services on campus.

CTC is planning more of the free seminars.
