Mission Statement : To provide veterans, military connected students, and military family members who attend Syracuse University or SUNY ESF with resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.

Welcome to the Student Veterans Organization (SVO) at Syracuse University. The SVO provides a great way to get involved on campus and gives you a sense of camaraderie as you transition to academic life. Our organization is a place that you can immediately connect with people who have already had experience with the challenges you can encounter while transitioning to higher education and the SVO members are happy to share strategies for success and becoming part of the wider Syracuse University community. With regular events and outings, you’ll soon feel at home as you make lifelong friendships. So come out to an event or a meeting and check out the SVO.
