Grand opening of UW's Veteran Services and Military Assistance Center

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A grand opening on the UW-Madison campus Thursday.

School officials and students cut the ribbon on the new Veteran Services and Military Assistance Center.

The center consists of business offices, and specially designed spaces for use by federal and state officials, employers, and other agencies to assist student veterans, active duty students and more.

UW Chancellor Dr. Rebecca Blank says, "Some of these students are veterans, others are active duty military, and some are children and spouses of veterans. And of course we have faculty and staff members who are also veterans and reservists who also need help at times understanding benefits and tapping into the resources."

Campus officials say there are around 600 prior-service veterans and current military members enrolled during a typical semester.
