Did you know that the military student population at SIUE is among the largest in the state? Officials for the University are making sure that doesn’t go unnoticed.

The SIUE Office for Student Affairs and Academic Affairs have announced the creation of the Military and Veteran Resource Center.

The MAVRC will provide a central location for military-connected students to seek assistance and also provides a networking place for like-minded individuals who have shared similar military cultural experiences.

Director of Military and Veteran Services, Kevin Wathen, tells the BigZ the thought process behind opening the center.
