C.A.R.E is our Motto

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

(We CARE).

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.
