Involvement and Connections

An active chapter of Student Veterans of America provides Mid Michigan College students opportunities to engage in activities outside of the classroom. Through SVA, Mid’s students have gone on charter fishing trips, volunteered and served in community outreach, and formed deep and lasting bonds with their fellow soldiers/veterans.

At the heart of Mid’s student-led chapter, and in alignment with the national organization’s vision, this group “empowers veterans to be informed consumers of higher education and make the most of the transition to civilian life.” The national organization provides veteran scholarships and training opportunities to support academic growth and degree attainment.
