About Student Veterans of America

Student Veterans of America logo

Today's veterans face numerous obstacles in their path of attaining a college degree. These challenges range from a missing sense of camaraderie and feeling like an outsider amongst 18-year-old traditional students, to a lack of understanding by university faculty. When coupled with the visible and invisible wounds of war, a college degree can be an elusive goal for men and women returning from military service. Student Veterans of America makes that goal a reality.

Western Michigan University Student Veterans of America is a way for veterans, currently serving military, ROTC cadets, and their friends and families to find support, resources, and the advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and employment. If you would like to be a part of the WMU Student Veterans of America, contact military-affairs@wmich.edu. Visit Student Veterans of America online for more information.
