AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -
The importance of veterans
to our community was demonstrated yet again by Auburn University in a ribbon
cutting to celebrate the relocation of the university's Veterans Resource
Auburn University veterans
and their dependents got a bonus to their veteran's day festivities Tuesday when
AU celebrated the relocation of its Veterans Resource Center to newly remodeled
offices on campus.
The Veterans Resource
Center was formed in 2010 to increase support for and outreach to veterans
enrolling in college after the post-9/11 GI bill took effect.
The center is the central
resource for support for veteran students and can help identify academic
resources, provide financial advising and give professional, personal and
career development services.
"To me this really
shows the university's support for us as an organization and for what we've
done for the country," said Dan McClain, Auburn Student Veteran President. "Really,
it helps us establish a sense of community as well and we just can't be
thankful enough for that."
The center provides timely
and comprehensive support to currents and former military service members
including eligible dependants, by collaborating with veteran affairs representatives,
the university and civilian advocate organizations.
Auburn University currently has 284
veterans and 416 veteran dependents enrolled this semester.
This new state of the art
center will continue to help students succeed and make that transition from
combat to campus to career.
