Why Attend?

San Diego State University continues to lead the way in support to all military affiliated students. SDSU's support of its military population is evident by The Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center's recent move into a larger facility on campus. At nearly 4,000 square feet, our office provides more streamlined support to the military student by serving as the "hub" to the more than 3,500 students who utilize state/federal VA education benefits each semester. With more than 1,500 students utilizing Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits, The Center is know nationally and internationally as pioneering new programs and initiatives. These include, but are not limited to, military outreach to transitioning active service members and veterans coming from the community colleges; managing the first Student Veterans House in the nation where military students can study, congregate, and relax before, during and after classes; establishment of a Career Initiatives program to aid military students with internships, workshops, networking, and transition assistance into the career force after graduation; development of the Military Ally awareness seminar based on the "safe zone" concept and modeled on the CSU Long Beach Vet Net Ally program to provide faculty, staff, and community members a glimpse into the unique culture and experience of today's military student; multiple committees and councils on and off campus that work to provide the best opportunities for the entire military community; and the planned development of a military/veteran Oral History program.
