Wright State offers an array of resources to help those students transition to campus. The Veteran and Military Center (VMC) is 4,500-square-foot area designed to efficiently provide support services for veteran and military students and provide a space where they can relax and study together. The VMC processes $7.5 million in tuition benefits and related benefits a year for student veterans.

Stories by a number of student veterans will air on public radio.
