Student Veterans Center

Boots2Books

We invite you to come in and visit the Student Veterans Center. Prairie State College (PSC) wants to provide a welcoming place for the brave men and women who have served our nation in war and in peace. We stand ready to help you transition back to civilian life.

At PSC, we understand the unique challenges a veteran faces when rejoining civilian life and starting college after several, and sometimes many years, outside of the classroom. To help make that transition easier, we opened the Student Veterans Center. The PSC Student Veterans Center is the central hub for our veterans program. It is a dedicated area designated for veterans, located just off the atrium in room 1240. The Student Veterans Center offers a mini-USO feel. It is a one-stop shop for veterans to connect and network with one another.

PSC offers a supportive environment for veterans. We want to ease the transition from boots to books and help veterans adjust to college life.
