Eastern Opens New Veterans Center

Written by Allison Kelly

Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University will open its new Veterans Education and Transition Services (VETS) Center from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 19.   The ceremony will take place in Room 200 of the Alvin B. Wood Support Services Center. A reception will follow the ceremony.

 The VETS Center, designed to meet the educational and transitional needs of veterans at Eastern, is staffed by veteran and non-veteran student workers. The Center provides a space for veterans to relax, socialize and use computers to access the resources available about Veterans Administration benefits and services.

"The center familiarizes veterans with student activities and helps acclimate them to an academic atmosphere," said Caleb Diebolt '09, student veteran and program coordinator for the VETS Center. Senior Rebecca Shea, a veteran and office assistant in the VETS Center, agreed. "It is nice to have a place where you feel welcome."
