Missouri State University is home to one of the largest numbers of veterans and dependents pursuing higher education in the state.
These veteran students join almost 900,000 more across the United States using military benefits to seek a degree.
MSU works hard to support these students and recognize them for their service to the country.
The Oldham Family Veteran Student Center
“Military connected students use the lounge to find camaraderie, share experiences, and to study,” said Raeleen Ziegler, director of the VSC. “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.”
“Throughout the Veteran Student Center, you’ll find a strong support team to assist you throughout your educational transition,” Ziegler said. “Our mission is to empower, encourage and engage veterans and their families with the university and surrounding community.”
