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
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
“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.”
