Youngstown State University recently launched the public phase of a $1.25 million fund-raising campaign to construct a Veterans Resource Center on Wick Avenue that will help military veterans and service members transition to and succeed as university students.

YSU President Cynthia E. Anderson said the creation of the Veterans Resource Center is yet another step in the university’s continued commitment to serve the special needs of veteran and military students who are leaving their military careers and entering university life.

“It is imperative that we do all we can do to ensure that these individuals, who have served their country with honor, are successful in reaching their educational and career goals,” she said.

If the funds are raised, a two-story building will be constructed on the site of the former Peck House on Wick Avenue, between Pollock House and Melnick Hall. It will house the YSU Office of Veterans Affairs to assist current and former members of the military who become YSU students. The building will provide a space for students to gather, interact with other veterans and receive assistance with admissions, financial aid and other related services. Read more...
