Ut Prosim: That I may serve. 

This motto embodies the educational and community foundations of Virginia Tech.  We celebrate our military veterans, in particular, for their exemplary service to the nation and their daily contributions to the university.  We are committed to supporting veterans' integration into academic and professional lives at Virginia Tech by providing support networks and a central resource for veterans' information on campus and in the local community.

Welcome to Virginia Tech. We look forward to serving you.

Humanizing the Discourse

An interdisciplinary conference, sponsored by the Center for the Study of Rhetoric in Society (CSRS) at Virginia Tech, will be held at the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center to bring together multiple perspectives on the many issues surrounding veterans in society. Our goal is for the conference to create a multi-disciplinary, international scholarly community with its own calendar of events and digital presence.

Veterans Connect:

A Peer Support and Networking Group

Spring 2014 Group Forming Now
Students interested in participating in a group should go to:



Military and veteran students are invited to participate in a weekly Peer Support and Networking Group. The purpose of the group is to provide veteran and military students the opportunity to connect with their peers and discuss issues that are of importance to them in a safe and confidential setting.  The participants decide the content of the discussion in-group each week.  Whether you are new to the university or have been here for some time, the group provides camaraderie and a supportive environment in which students can feel comfortable sharing experiences and learning from each other.


The group is free of charge and no registration is required.  New members are welcome throughout the semester and participants can attend the weekly sessions as often as they wish.
