Information for Student Veterans

Returning from deployment is not as simple as it may sound. Sure, it can be filled with joyful moments.  However, it can also invoke reactions that surprise even the most stoic soldier. It is important to recognize that these emotions are normal, especially during the first weeks. 

If you find that you are having difficulties adjusting, experiencing emotions that are confusing to you, or would like to speak with someone about these changes, our office is available to support you while you get  back on your feet.
