VRC Service Survey

Any Suggestions, Questions, Comments, and Concerns?

The Veterans Resource Center would like to hear from you. If you've received services through our office, email, phone, or zoom; Did the VRC team assist and help answer your questions? Give us feedback on support and assistance VRC provides for you. Whatever is on your mind let us know, so we can best evaluate your concerns and better support you and future VRC students.

  • Complete a VRC survey
  • As many times necessary
  • Best prepare VRC team for current and future students.



The Veteran Resource Center is a great spot to get what you need. Some days you need to print out a course syllabus get a snack or check in with your education plan with a counselor. Other days you might need to check out a textbook, get a book voucher, or get another snack. After a long road back to a full time student course load, I find myself returning to the VRC just to get a nice kick in the motivation seat. Keeps me laughing and studying.
