Veterans Resource Center Mission Statement
The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) provides assistance and coordination of veterans education benefits, admissions, registration, financial aid and transition resources to active duty service members, veterans, and their families.
At the VRC, we want veterans to feel they have a comfortable place to go where they can enjoy some of the camaraderie from their military days! We are veterans ourselves and we understand as well as feel the disconnect that can happen. Here at TCL we want to bridge that disconnect, give ourselves and the students the opportunity to help one another.
Join the Student Veteran Organization at TCL
If you haven’t thought about it yet, consider joining the Student Veterans Organization at TCL. We have the outline set up but need student veterans to step up and lead the charge. We feel that you can receive a lot from being a member and we would love to use the VRC as a meeting area as well as to facilitate any events/activities the Organization would deem worthy.
Please visit the VRC Facebook Page for upcoming events and news!
