As a result, they receive a wide array of educational, therapeutic and recovery-related programs. Several of this year’s graduates have already received acceptance letters to Manhattan College and are taking college-level courses at the jail and at no cost to taxpayers.

Manhattan College basketball fans may start belting Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” when they see the roster Team Draddy has put together for The Basketball Tournament. The squad is loaded with talented former Jaspers who helped the program reach such heights as back-to-back NCAA Tournaments in 2014 and 2015.

Seventh-seeded Team Draddy will need a little bit of that upset magic if it’s going to advanced through the Syracuse Regional in The Basketball Tournament. The former Jaspers open with Armored Athlete, a veteran TBT squad. It’ll be a tough road, but a great chance for Jasper fans to see some of the program’s all-time greats back in green and white.

(RNS) — Three years ago, Stephen Kaplan, a religious studies professor at Manhattan College, a small Catholic school in the Bronx, N.Y., purposely populated his introductory course, “Nature and Experience of Religion,” with a mix of traditional students and returning veterans.

His strategy was part of Manhattan’s Veterans at Ease program, then an experiment that sought to help veterans reintegrate into civilian and academic life after being separated from both by years of combat and isolating service.

It didn’t take long for the theory behind the program to come face to face with practice.
