ACE Veteran Success Jam participants discussed the importance of veteran space within the college environment. This might include the creation of a veterans center, office or lounge that becomes a centralized location for the school certifying official, student veterans organizations, veterans recruiting and outreach activities, as well as other information or student services you choose to provide (e.g., tutoring, academic advising, career counseling, peer mentor programs, disability support services, etc.).
A veteran lounge might provide a study area with computers and would offer student veterans one convenient location where they can spend time, interact with peers, find the answers to their questions, and feel comfortable. This space could also be the prime location for VA Work-Study students to be positioned. Natural peer mentorship tends to develop in these locations, which is a win-win for both students and administrators.
