Student Veterans Club

Our Mission:

Our purpose is to fulfill the needs of veterans and to create an environment dedicated to veteran support. Though our main focus is our veterans we also realize how essential everyone is in terms of support. This is a task that Veterans are not able to do alone, so any help that is provided by anyone is both respected and greatly appreciated.

Our Philosophy:

Every branch of service emphasizes the idea of unity and team and our goal here at the Veterans Club is to continue to develop a sense of camaraderie amongst our students, veterans, and faculty. Everyone is here not as a single person but as a member of a bigger team working for a common goal.

Our Goal:

To provide a smooth transition for our returning military personnel from their current duty. Also, to help out our veterans with key elements they need in setting them up for success. Finally, to incorporate unity, respect, and togetherness between Prairie State College, its students and those who have volunteered their service.
