Celebrate “Salute to Service” Week for CSUN Student Veterans with the Veterans Resource Center
Northridge - The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) of the University Student Union (USU) invites all students, faculty and staff to a weeklong “Salute to Service” celebration for CSUN Student Veterans. From Monday, Nov.9 to Friday, Nov. 13, this virtual series will offer programs to create connections within the CSUN veteran community and the opportunity to discover great resources and services offered by the VRC.
“The VRC is here to help all of our Student Veterans and we always want to hear what they have to say,” said VRC manager, Mayra Plascencia. “This is a chance for all of them to make new friends, check out everything we have to offer and let us know what else they want to see from the VRC.”
Start your “Salute to Service” week on Monday, Nov. 9 by participating in Joining Forces ally training for CSUN students, faculty and staff from 1 to 3 p.m. This informational event will introduce you to the best ways to help Student Veterans transition from the military into a school setting. The more everyone is informed on how to approach this significant change, the better veterans can connect with our campus. Then, that same night, enjoy watching Monday Night Football together with your friends on a live stream over Zoom!
On Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m., listen how the veteran community engages
with today’s news at the Veterans Talk Current Events discussion panel. Remember to RSVP by Monday, Nov. 9 to confirm your spot. Then join us at the virtual Lunchtime Pop-In with the VRC from 2 to 4 p.m. to continue the conversation with friends.
Wednesday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day and the CSUN campus is closed. Take a virtual stroll on social media and find out how everyone on campus along with the Veterans Resource Center thanks Student Veterans for their service and cheers them on during their academic journey at CSUN.
Then on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., it’s another opportunity to attend Joining Forces ally training via Zoom. That evening, tell your friends to log into the VRC Game Night over Zoom from 6:30 to 8 p.m. where you can have fun showing off your gaming skills and taking wins!
To complete the week of celebration, on Friday, Nov. 13, the VRC will be hosting an Open House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. featuring an overview of all services and programs it offers to Student Veterans and other military-connected students. This is also a chance for all CSUN students to experience the always welcoming environment of the Veterans Resource Center and make connections with our Student Veterans.
