Veterans Center

Veterans Center

Located in Bernardine Hall Room 100 and working with our Veterans Club, the Veterans Center creates a comfortable atmosphere in which veterans and veteran affiliates are able to bond and share experiences.  We promote members’ participation in veteran organizations and outreach programs that will enlighten fellow Alvernians about veteran culture and history and raise awareness within our community about the issues surrounding veterans and their families.  Our Veterans Advocate and our small staff of Student Veterans are ready to help veterans and veteran affiliates become aware and make use of all possible Alvernia and external support resources, as well.
