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.
Veterans Connect: A Peer Support and Networking Group
When: Fridays, 12:00-1:30 pm, starting February 8th
Interested active duty military and veteran students are invited to participate in a weekly Peer Support and Networking Group which will meet weekly on Fridays from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. starting February 8th. The purpose of the group is to provide military and veteran students the opportunity to connect with their peers, discuss academic and personal challenges, and support each other in a safe and confidential setting. Whether you are relatively 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.
Marina Shafran, a licensed clinical psychologist with the University Counseling Center, will facilitate the weekly groups. Students do not need to register with the Counseling Center to participate. Participants can attend the weekly sessions as often or as little as they wish based on their personal preference. The group is free of charge and will remain open to new members throughout the semester.
