Student Military & Veterans Organization

Led by one of our current students, a full-time recruiter for the National Guard, the School of Continuing Studies is in the process of forming an SVO on the Providence campus.  The SCS SVO will hold regular meetings, study sessions and events geared towards military students and their families.  All SCS students as well as students enrolled in the Veterans¹ Gateway to College and Career Success program will be invited and encouraged to attend.
