New Start is indebted to Dr. Dennis Repp, the program’s primary and founding benefactor. Dr. Repp is a distinguished CSU alumnus and military veteran who is constant in making a difference in the lives of others. We applaud and thank you Dr. Repp for inspiring this active and vital program here at CSU!
Her kindness and compassion for those of us trying to come back to the civilian world, especially women, was literally life changing for me.
“I was so scared to reach out for help and she (New Start Coordinator) helped me more than I can ever express. This Veterans Day I find myself thanking people like her because we need them more than ever!”
