Simpson University recently marked the grand opening of its new Veterans Success Center with a ceremony, renewing the university’s commitment to enabling veteran students to succeed academically.
 
“This building is dedicated for one thing: to help veterans get together and be able to have the best chance of succeeding,” retired Marine Lt. Col. Carl Bott, a guest speaker at the ceremony, said. “Our veterans are successes. They will succeed. The fact that Simpson recognizes them, I appreciate and so much thank you for that.”
 
The ceremony was followed by tours of the center, which includes computer stations, a study room and a lounge and concessions area.

Beyond the center, the school has a Success Advocates for Veterans Education (SAVE) team, which offers education, health and wellness services, and is in the process of starting a student veterans club and mentorship programs.
 
“The center is a one-stop shop to provide access to educational resources and an environment for student veterans to engage with one another,” Simpson University Veterans Services Coordinator Justin Spears, a former Navy hospital corpsman, said. “It is only a starting point. I look forward to working with service members, veterans, dependents and everyone in support of veterans education at Simpson.”
