Veterans Resource Center and Community
No matter who you are, there’s a place for you at St. Scholastica. And for our members of our military community, we mean that literally. The Veteran’s Resource Center (VRC) is a physical space on campus specifically for military students — serving as the base of operations for an ever-supportive and welcoming community that guides you through the ups and downs of college life.
But no matter where you are, our Academic Access/Support, Military Support Director will advocate for you — using all of our available resources to ensure you have a positive experience.
