Our mission in the Veteran Student Services (VSS) office is to empower, encourage and engage veterans and their families with the university and surrounding community. We strive to ensure our returning heroes have all the accommodations and assistance needed to be successful student while making the process a rewarding and enriching experience. A few of our support services include:
The Veteran Student Lounge located in Carrington Hall room 315 gives you the opportunity to study at one of our computers, sink into one of our couches and relax, drink some of our locally brewed coffee and meet other veteran students at Missouri State. It is equipped with comfortable furniture, free coffee, computers, CAC reader, television, Xbox game console and other amenities.
Our Veteran Peer Advisors stand ready to assist you with a variety of issues. Trained to help with Tuition Assistance, GI Bill and other financial applications as well as being student-veterans themselves gives our Veteran Peer Advisors the tools needed to guide through your college experience.
This student lead organization helps veterans connect with each other while supporting the community and advocating for unique causes. To learn more or to join contact the VSO President, Andrew Simmonds at Andrew201@live.missouristate.edu
