Meet Lanear Brown. He’s a senior exercise science major who teaches fitness classes at the College and commutes to campus from his home in Summerville, S.C. Like the majority of College of Charleston students, he’s curious, engaged and intent on using his time at CofC to set a firm path for himself for life after college. But that’s where the similarities end. Brown is a military veteran who spent 15 years in the U.S. Air Force on active duty. Consequently, his life experiences are vastly different from those of most conventional college students.
