TU to open new Veterans Center on Forbes Campus

For years Thomas University has been recognized for its efforts to recognize and assist veterans in the region. Now TU is stepping up that commitment by opening the Veterans Services and Career Transition Center next to the TU Library on the Forbes Campus.

“Thomas University recognizes the unique needs of veterans in our community,” said Stephen Ferguson, TU Associate Vice President for Enrollment and Business Development, Military Operations.  “The Veterans Services and Career Transition Center will allow veterans the opportunity to connect with peers and establish a designated area, where veterans can share experiences and enhance comradery among veterans in our community.”

The grand opening and ribbon cutting for the Veterans Center will be held in front of the TU Library at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 25, featuring keynote speaker Brigadier General Thomas Carden Jr., Assistant Adjutant General of the Georgia Army National Guard.

“The Center will provide a wide range of services, such as assistance with VA education benefits counseling, mental health counseling, referrals to external support services, academic support, career services, such as resume and interviewing prep,” Ferguson continued. “The Center is open to all Veterans regardless of affiliation with Thomas University, including active duty service members, National Guard, Reserve and military dependents.”

Several groups have already partnered with TU to work with veterans at the center, including the Georgia Department of Labor, Aetna, Hopes and Dreams Riding Facility, as well as TU’s Student Veterans of America and SALUTE Veterans Honor Society.
