Congrats to the Grads! Profiles in Success—2015

Travis Boyce: Prepared to serve

Defeat Al Qaida in the NorthAfter graduating from high school in 2005, Travis Boyce became a Marine. He did two tours in Iraq before returning to the U.S. to earn an associate’s degree. Still, he wanted more.

“I decided to get my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice,” says Travis, who looked at a few schools in the area that just didn’t seem to “fit.”

“When I came to Georgian Court, I met criminal justice professor Bob Louden and in financial aid I met Ellen Scavuzzo, who helped me with veterans benefits,” he says. “Between the two of them, I knew that it was not only a perfect fit, but that it was going to be a simple transition. I never had to worry about anything going wrong.”

Travis, who completed his degree in December and is interviewing with a federal agency and a major city police department, was particularly impressed with Dr. Louden’s courses—especially because of the professor’s experience in the Army and as a former NYPD hostage negotiator.

“Dr. Louden could instantly relate to me and all I had done in my life thus far. With Ellen, she knew all there was to know about about the GI Bill,” Travis recalls. “It was a combination that took a lot of stress away and helped me reach my goal.”
