If you are currently serving, have served, or are in support of those that serve, then this is the organization you're looking for! Through the course of the semester, this group will meet monthly to discuss Veteran resources as well as provide a community of support. We understand that most Veterans are non-traditional students, meaning that you have a family, do not live on campus, or work full-time; With that in mind, the Student Veteran's of America-GVSU Chapter is organized in a way that will get you connected and help you find community without too much extra effort on your part.
