Veteran Resource Consuls
 Made up of our own student veterans and supportive civillian students, they help run the SVRC and its programs. They are here to help students navigate the uncertainties of collegiate life and to steer their way to success. They can help with campus resources and support, or they can guide you to specific offices on campus.

They are available, Monday - Friday, from 8:00am to 4:30pm.

Academic Support - Student Veterans Resource Center

I have been working for the SVRC since spring 2019 and have really enjoyed my time here. I strive to keep up to date information available and a welcoming atmosphere at the SVRC. I have not served, but have a great respect for those that do. There is great honor in serving. In my free time I enjoy reading and working out. I am very active on campus and can be found studying during my off time at the SVRC.
