WCSU Veterans Center
Western has smoothed the transition to the classroom for men and women who served in the U.S. armed forces with the opening of the university’s new Veterans Center on Veterans Day in November 2009. The center, on the second floor of the Student Center, provides approximately 100 veterans who currently attend WestConn with access to computers and a quiet place to study and talk. “It’s great to have a place to come to where we can feel comfortable,” said Jeremy Mack, president of the university’s Student Veteran Organization and member of the Connecticut Army National Guard. The SVO, the Division of Student Affairs, the Financial Affairs Office and other university services strive to meet the diverse needs of veterans in realizing their academic objectives at Western and preparing for future careers.
