Welcome, Student Veterans!

Thank you for your service! Transitioning from the military to college is a unique experience for Veterans. The Western Kentucky Student Veteran's Alliance is a Veteran run student organization that was established in order to provide military Veterans, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard and their dependents with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education.

Fall 2014

Fall 2014 was bigger and better than ever!  We upped our membership to over 50 members; we reached out to over hundreds veterans and we raised over $4000.00 in funds!  It is thanks to all of you!  We would like to send out as many people as we can during this Winter break to our National SVA convention in San Antonio; so if you're interested let us know and we'll cover all the costs of registration, lodging, and travel.  We look forward to a great convention this year with some excellent keynote speakers, such as the new VA Secretary Rob McDonald and Medal of Honor recipient Kyle Carpenter.


Summer 2014

Student Veterans, we had a great Spring semester this year and it has been a pleasure meeting and conversing with you all.  I hope your summer has been a relaxing one and I look forward to seeing you again this Fall.  Remember, our office is located in Tate Page Hall Room 410, next to Military Student Services on the 4th Floor.  This Summer, our Vice President had the pleasure of attending the Student Veterans of America Leadership Institute in Bentonville, AR and hopes to bring back some of that knowledge to help advocate for our veterans here at Western.  SVA was also mentioned alongside Military Student Services in an article published in the WKU Spirit Magazine; a link to that article can be found on our navigation bar above under Events > SVA in the News.  I expect great things from all of you as we finish out the rest of the year, and remember SVA is here for you when you need us.
