Student Veteran's Organization

Our mission is to provide a welcoming atmosphere to all military veterans through peer support, advocacy, and community involvement while upholding the Jesuit philosophy of being “men and women for others” enabling every member to succeed in higher education and beyond.  Membership is open to all student veterans and interested members of the University Community.
