Over 2,000 military veterans and their family members are enrolled at Ohio State using their GI Bill education benefits as graduate and undergraduate students, but going from military life to student life can be a significant change. Many veterans face challenges that are far different from most traditional students. Through the Veteran Community Advocate (VCA) Program, many of Ohio State’s top veteran students are continuing their service to the university and their fellow veterans on campus. The VCA Program is a vital part of the effort to help connect fellow veterans to resources and experiences that will ensure our veteran students accomplish their new mission - academic and professional success. If you are interested in serving in a Community Advocate position, please contact the Office of Military and Veterans Services at 614-247-VETS.
