The mission of the Office of Veteran Success is to support the student veteran experience on campus by assisting with their veteran educational benefits and the veteran work-study program. The Office provides an opportunity for student veterans to build community in conjunction with the Student Veterans Organization and providing an exclusive veterans lounge.

There is numerous legislation out there to help veterans receive an education and it can get confusing trying to sort through it all. Are you eligible for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill® or how much will you receive for the Yellow Ribbon Program at Syracuse University? These questions can overwhelm anyone who is trying to take advantage of the numerous programs available.

The OVS’s primary goal is supporting students with the Veteran Educational Benefits and ensuring that every student gets the most support they can from these programs. But more than that, the OVS aims to make life easier for student veterans and are always around to help no matter the request. Every veteran student is welcome to the Veterans Lounge where they can connect with other student veterans, seek help with anything on campus, or just hang out and watch the latest SU basketball game on the 55″ TV.

The office and the Veterans Lounge are located on the third floor at 700 University Ave. Please stop in any time!
