Hello veterans and military-connected students and parents. In an effort to safe guard students, faculty, and staff from the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Office of Veteran Services will have reduced staff at our campus location this fall. As of August 12 we will be available on campus to meet with you if needed, and request that all visitors to our office space adhere to university guidelines and wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect the health of all.
We continue to encourage you to connect with us via email, telephone, and Zoom conferencing as an effective alternative to in-person interaction. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 540-231-5815 to arrange a convenient time to discuss your needs.
