Join the Student Veteran Alliance
Saint Xavier University's Student Veteran Alliance (SVA) offers opportunities for professional and social networking, leadership development and peer support. The mission of the SVA at SXU is to advocate for and assist student veterans and their families. We promote camaraderie through community outreach, social support, and a commitment to academic and professional success.
Meetings are held twice per semester to discuss potential volunteer and event opportunities. Our group aims to:
- Provide a social support group and peer mentoring to veterans who are adjusting to college life
- Raise awareness for veterans' issues and facilitate dissemination of information to veterans
- Promote community service and volunteerism as well as to organize projects and events supporting veterans and their needs/issues.
Visit the Student Veteran Resource Center (SVRC)
The SVRC is located on SXU's main campus in Room L-209 in the Warde Academic Center. The SVRC is a place for veterans to relax, do homework, meet other veterans and have any and all questions answered regarding benefits and life at SXU. The veteran coordinator and a VA work study are both located in the SVRC.
