As a member of the Stockbridge and UMass communities, you are invited to stop by the Student Veterans Resource Center (SVRC) located in Dickinson Hall (up Hicks Way from the Recreation Center) in Rooms 18-19.
The SVRC hosts a variety of workshops throughout the year such as "Preparing for Course Registration" and "Translating Your Military Experience to a Civilian Resume." Veteran staff members are available during regular office hours if you have questions. You'll find the SVRC is a comfortable place to study, relax, meet other student veterans, learn about and access resources, or just have a cup of coffee!
