Veteran’s Center in Gardiner Hall officially opens
At the request of our student veterans who wished to have a more central location on campus, the Veterans Center was relocated to Gardiner Hall’s first floor lobby from its original location on Princess Street. The Veterans Center helps veterans who are transitioning from the military to civilian life as students and provides a location for veterans to meet, socialize, and study. The Veterans Center is a demonstration of Shepherd’s commitment to meeting the 5 Star Challenge, an initiative that encourages all of West Virginia’s two- and four-year institutions to adopt a set of standards to help veterans achieve an education. Support for equipping the Veterans Center came from the Shepherd University President’s Club and Norman and Jeanie Secrist.
