Veteran Support Lounge

In January 2015, Marion campus students who currently serve or have served in any branch of the armed forces were granted access to a designated space to use as a Veteran Support Lounge, Room 111B in the Alber Student Center. What began as a fairly empty room has now grown into a sanctuary for student military members/campus veterans to garner support, study, decompress, and share their military experiences with other like-minded student veterans. The room features comfortable seating, computer, WiFi, 3 designated study areas/workstations, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and storage space. The space is appropriately appointed with U.S. flag, and wall decals featuring the insignia for multiple branches of military. If you are a Marion campus student, faculty, or staff member who currently or has previously served in the military, you have open access to the new Veterans Support Lounge.
