One of the critical roles and responsibilities of VetSuccess On Campus is to make our Veterans, Active Duty Military, and Dependents aware of the key resources available to them as they pursue their educational and career goals. The VetSuccess On Campus office maintains a comprehensive listing of resources, but the resources below represent what we feel are the most critical services that you will need and want to access during your academic career.
APSU Military Student Center (MSC) Austin Peay State University established the Military Student Center in 2010 to better serve the needs of the Veterans, Active Duty/Reserve personnel, ROTC students, and family members that attend the university. The center has a computer center, a lounge, and dining area to allow students to either work on homework or to relax and unwind from the day surrounded by fellow likeminded students. The Center offers programs throughout the academic year to address the challenges our student population faces. One such program we recently established is the Text for Vets program that relies on student donations to provide text books for fellow students free of charge. We are available every week day that the school is open to assist students in MUC 120 (located behind the Post Office). Hours of Operation: Monday - Tuesday 8am - 6pm and Wednesday - Friday 8am - 4:30pm. Phone: 931.221.1685 Website: apsu.edu/military Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

APSU Student Veteran Organization (SVO) The APSU Student Veterans Organization serves Veterans, Active Duty & Family Members. They exist to help students who represent a large but often silent and overlooked part of the student body. By becoming involved in the SVO, students are able to better integrate into campus life, and through networking and advocacy, are in a better position to access a broad range of services available to them during their academic career. In addition, the SVO can represent and advocate for Veterans, and Family Members both on the main campus and at the Ft. Campbell campus. Primary Contac: Jason Matthews, SVO President.
