BW Dedicates New Veterans Resource Center

November 17, 2016

BW has opened the doors on a new Veterans Resource Center (VRC) created to welcome and support Military and Veteran students who are transitioning into college. Completed just in time for a Veterans Day dedication, the VRC is centrally located on the lower level of BW’s Student Activities Center (SAC).

BW Veteran Student Services Coordinator, Randy Stevenson, says the center is aimed at meeting the unique needs of BW's military community. “The VRC will be used to direct students to campus resources, help connect veterans with other peers, and help facilitate student veteran organization monthly meetings,” Stevenson explains. 

One Space, Many Purposes

Stevenson says the center serves many purposes, including a space where veterans can receive counseling on an range of VA benefits, including education. They can also dig into information and referrals on a variety of on-and-off-campus resources, and get involved with BW’s Student Veterans Organization.

The VRC also offers a quiet environment for hanging out or doing homework, with two computer stations, a refrigerator, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, and TV, and provides a BW location for community veteran services organizations and partners to conduct veteran outreach events. 

Support, Hours and Access

“BW has a long history of supporting military personnel,” Stevenson says. “Our current population of approximately 85 student veterans enhances the richness and diversity of an already inclusive campus community.”

Staffed office hours for the BW VRC, located at 96 Beech Street, are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Current students will have swipe access to the Center from 8 a.m. until midnight.
