The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) serves as the centralized hub for all student veteran, service member, and dependents needs. The center offers a wide array of services and resources, including a space where student military affiliates can connect with one another or participate in the Student Veterans Alliance (SVA) Club. We proudly serve all our student military affiliates through our in-person Veteran Resource Center and LiveChat! 

One of the most pressing issues facing veterans is social isolation. We have over 200 veterans on campus. Many veterans have difficulty adjusting to civilian life, especially adjusting to college. The VRC is designed to be sensitive to the transition from military to civilian life as well as education success.
