The University of Memphis recently opened a Veterans Resource Center on campus to help military officials and their dependents benefit from a college experience.
Located in the Panhellenic Building, it is open daily to student veterans. The building offers access to a computer lab and lounge area.
There are more than 600 veterans, active duty and dependents, who attend the university in hopes of obtaining a degree in their chosen career paths.
The center was designed to assist student veterans in receiving educational and medical benefits, to seek counseling and to provide resources that will allow them to integrate into the campus community. The center also provides off-campus resources and information, including home loan programs.
