Youngstown State University will cut the ribbon on a brand new Veterans Resource Center September 26th, 2014 at 633 Wick Avenue.  The 6000 square foot facility will boast accomodations for its veteran student population such as a veterans lounge equipped with a 55 inch, large screen tv, gaming systems, and comfortable furniture as well as a modern computer lab, community room, vending machines and kitchenette.  The Center will also house the Office of Veterans Affairs.  Coordinator, Rick Williams, is excited to move in and offer the same array of services the office has always offered it's students with the addition of a few extra services such as a BSW Student Intern, future programming to assist student veterans with various needs, and the increased space just for veteran and military students.  It's a dream come true thanks to the efforts of a few veteran alumni who worked over four years and countless hours to secure the land and work out all the details and fund raising and of course the generous donations of many local veteran friendly businesses, patriotic families and communty members.

YSU will be the only University in Ohio to offer a dedicated buiding solely for it's veteran and military student population.  The Grand Opening Ceremony will be held on the North Lawn of the Pollick House just south of the Center.
