Soldier achieves goal of college degree

Anthony Gardull Jr. has spent the last eight years serving his country as a military police officer in the United States Army Reserve. This week, Gardull will graduate from The University of Toledo with a bachelor of applied organizational technology.

After completing his associate’s degree at Owens Community College, Gardull chose UT because it was easy to transfer.

“I had a positive experience at UT,” Gardull said. “My instructors were very helpful, and the University was always understanding that I needed flexibility with my classes and exams.”

Gardull has served two deployments in Afghanistan, one in 2008-09 and another in 2011-12. He will receive his Army commission via ROTC Friday, May 2.

Upon graduating, Gardull has orders to report to Fort Hood, Texas, as a Second Lieutenant assigned to a military police unit.

In conjunction with the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning, UT’s Military Service Center provides accessible educational and degree completion opportunities and a wide range of customized support services to service members and their families.
