Student Affairs and Services Celebrates MSU Veterans

November 10, 2020

Michigan State University is home to more than 2,000 military-affiliated students, comprised of active duty servicemembers, reservists, National Guard members, veterans and dependent children and spouses. They are represented in every college across campus at every level.

As a community, MSU traditionally honors its veterans with several events by a variety of groups across campus. This year, however, this isn’t possible with a focus on physical distancing and Spartans doing their part as good neighbors to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Division of Student Affairs and Services and the Student Veterans Resource Center is extending a thank you and welcome home to all of the students, faculty, staff and alumni who have served in the United States armed forces. A thank you also goes out to families who also have sacrificed much in support of their loved ones. Special recognition goes out this year to our veteran alumni working in healthcare, as first responders and other essential roles around the world. We understand the calling toward selfless service doesn’t end when military members take off the uniform.

Current military-affiliated MSU students can find assistance through the Student Veterans Resource Center (SVRC) – available even while we are working remotely. The office can be reached through email at veterans@msu.edu and through ZOOM by appointment to help answer questions about state and federal education benefits, as well as help to find community resources that cater specifically to veterans. Visit veterans.msu.edu for more information and to find opportunities to connect. Current students may also find assistance, in the Student Veterans Resource Center D2L community.

Additionally, the Writing Engagement Liaison Program assistance is available. The SVRC liaison is available every Wednesday on a digital walk-in basis and through appointment. Current students can connect using the SVRC D2L community. 

As we celebrate Veterans Day, those who would like thank MSU’s military-affiliated students for their service, may support one of the many fundraising initiatives across campus this Veterans Day at Giving to MSU. Programs include Heroes to Hives, which helps veterans by teaching them beekeeping, and the Sergeant Leonard Bernard Graham III Endowed Scholarship Fund that supports veterans in their pursuit of a nursing degree, among others.
