This fall, veterans and members of the military as well as their dependents will have a place to call home on Augusta State’s campus.
A new Military and Veterans Service Center, to be located in the lower level of Payne Hall, will be officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, Aug. 21, from 1-2:30 p.m.
“We believe that the creation of this office marks the beginning of an exciting expansion of services for military members, veterans, and affiliated family members on our campus and a new era of cooperative education ventures with Fort Gordon and other partners in the community,” said Carol Giardina, director of Military Outreach.
The center will serve as a one stop shop for servicemembers who wish to enroll at ASU. Other services offered will include processing veteran affairs benefits, assisting with the GoArmyEd portal, and academic advising.
Augusta State has been designated as one of the nation’s military-friendly institutions in the 2012 Guide to Top Military Friendly Colleges and Universities by Military Advanced Education, the Journal for Higher Learning for Today’s Servicemember.
