GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - On Thursday, the Student Veterans Association at Colorado Mesa University will have its own place to call home on campus. The CMU Student Veterans Association says it’s a place where students can make a smooth transition going back to school.
Organizers say they researched with other universities about problems student veterans have.
“As far as navigating the education benefits system or networking to try and find employment on the back end, so we really have all the same questions,” said Student Veterans Association president Barry Teeple.
The Veterans Lounge will have its grand opening at 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Colorado Mesa University.
The SVA says it plans on adding computers to the lounge later on in the year.
