Missouri State houses the Oldham Family Veteran Student Center, where veteran students can find tutoring, community outreach, a computer lab, and other services.
“Military connected students use the lounge to find camaraderie, share experiences, and to study,” Raeleen Ziegler, director of the VSC, said in a statement. “There is a kitchen area where they enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks, and there is also a ping-pong table and board games for their entertainment.”
Students can also connect with organizations that can help them, such as the Veteran/Military Taskforce and the Veteran Student Organization.
