• Vet center lounge area



The Veterans Success Center is located downstairs in the Werner University Center in Room 108. The Veteran Success Center is broken into two sections the first is the Lounge area. This area offers a comfortable lounge space complete with couches, tv, Keurig, mini fridge, and microwave. This area is most commonly used for socials. The other area is our academic space where you will find computers, CAC card readers, printer, whiteboard, tables and chairs, and is often a much quieter area.

For the most part the VSC is where you will find access to events, workshops, mentors, and tutors, job placement assistance, disability claims assistance, as well as opportunities to get connected with student-veterans peers through our Student Veteran's of America chapter.

The Veteran Success Center exists to increase graduation rates of Veteran students in post secondary education through the coordination of services to address their academic, financial, physical, personal, and social needs. Our goal is to provide a safe and private place that is set aside for people of similar backgrounds as yourself. We hope to provide a culture that allows you to be comfortable being yourself, and to find support by veteran-to-veteran interaction. The Veteran Success Center is designed to help you be successful both on campus and off in helping you develop professionally through an academic setting.
