Thank you to our Veterans!

Check out other Veterans Celebration events being held November 9-13. To celebrate Veterans Day, I’d like to share some information about resources, at Boise State and beyond, which are available to veterans.

Boise State University Veteran Services Center
In 2015, Veteran Services was awarded a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education, which is being used to establish a Center of Excellence for Veteran Students. Congratulations to the amazing staff who work hard to make Boise State such a great environment for student veterans!

ΩΔΣ (Omega Delta Sigma)
Student veteran and Veteran Services Education and Event Coordinator Travis Hayes founded the Idaho Alpha Chapter of this co-ed college fraternity for veterans when he began his education at Boise State. Travis was recently featured on the Vice President’s Faces of Student Affairs blog. For more information about chapter activity at Boise State University contact pres.ida@omegadeltasigma.com.

Boise State University Veterans Upward Bound
This office is officially dedicated to helping veterans (both students and community) achieve academically by offering free assessments, instructional programs, and career planning, but the caring staff make it feel like a community center of sorts.

Boise Vet Center
The Boise Vet Center is available to all combat veterans, and is staffed with some awesome therapists who care about the well-being of veterans.

Library Research Guide - Veteran Services
You can find all of the resources I mention (and more) here. My contact information is also listed on this page, and please don’t hesitate to use it. I’m great at finding resources, whether academic or otherwise, so if I don’t know the answer to your question, I’m pretty sure I can find out who does!

Ellie Dworak is the library liaison for Veteran Services, Veteran’s Upward Bound and Military Sciences.
