Military & Veteran Services


Military Affiliated Student Programs 

Through the Office of Multicultural Affairs, we present opportunities for military and veteran students to be active on campus. Our main goal is to assist veterans with campus life and student engagement. It is our responsibility to know the different on campus resources and departments available that help Student Veterans. We coordinate events such as

  • Welcome Back Vets - Resource Fair
  • Flex for Vets
  • Greenzone Training
  • Veterans' Day Recognition
  • Veteran Graduation Ceremony (every spring semester)
  • And etc.

We are very much active with the student group, Student Veteran Organization as they create a close network with other military affiliated students. Our goal is to provide engaging events to foster an active military student affiliated environment to keep these students engaged.
