We provide support services for student veterans, military service members, and or their dependents.

We promote camaradarie, the Advancement of our students, offer Resources and Empower you to be your best selves.
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.
