In the fall of 2014, UAFS officially recognized the Student Veterans Organization. Since its inception, the SVO has been approved as a chapter of Student Veterans of America. Members of the SVO have participated in numerous campus and community events, and seek to continue their presence and support of veterans both at UAFS and in the surrounding area.
The SVO seeks to establish and maintain a network of student veterans, dependents, and supporters of veterans attending class at UAFS, and to form partnerships with other veteran-friendly agencies in the community. The SVO provides veterans and current service members with the resources, assistance, direction, and support necessary for the successful transition from military to student life. The organization strives to emphasize personal, professional, and academic success for all student veterans.
