About SVA

A group for Veterans by veterans. Today's veterans face numerous obstacles in their path of attaining a college degree. These challenges range from a missing sense of camaraderie to feeling like an outsider amongst 18 year old traditional students to a lack of understanding by university faculty. When coupled with the visible and invisible wounds of war, a college degree can be an elusive goal for men and women returning from military service. Student Veterans of America (SVA) works to help students over some these obstacles.

To provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.  Specifically, assist Veterans with the transition into student life.  Offer people with the same interests and experiences a place to meet and develop a support network which will provide resources, information on benefits,  and support in the hardships of transitioning back into civilian life.
