With the start of the Spring 2014 quarter upon us, we welcome all veterans and their dependents to our Veterans Resource Center.

On behalf of the Veterans Resource Center at Governor's State University, we would like to congratulate you on continuing your academic success this spring semester. The members of the VRC are dedicated to helping veterans and family members ease the transition from military service to academia. The VRC staff encourages you to take advantage of the services and resources that are in place for you. We also provide assistance and connect GSU student veterans and dependents with pertinent information to help make the transition into college more seamless.

As an affiliate chapter of Student Veterans of America, the members of the VRC are here to assist you in accessing a number of resources, including job opportunities, scholarships and other free events and initiatives geared specifically toward the student veteran community. Getting involved with the Veterans Resource Center at GSU will allow you to become a member of an organization that includes a network of more than 350 veterans and dependents from many diverse backgrounds. There are a number of events and activities to help increase your awareness of veterans support both inside and outside of GSU.

If you have any questions or are interested in receiving more information on the benefits of being involved in the VRC, please call 708.235.7597, email veterans@govst.edu or stop by the Veterans Resource Center in room 2109 of the A building to introduce yourself and get connected with us.

Thank you, and we hope to meet soon.
