Back to School: UMass Amherst welcomes returning soldiers, children of soldiers and their families with a new office on campus.
The Military Community Resource Center has been created to assist veterans in transitioning from the military to academia. On-campus resource referrals, social and educational events are offered. The office is also a supportive environment for siblings and children of veterans. The Center is shared by the Veterans and Service Members Association, a student organization that provides peer support, activities and community service. Students are welcomed to just stop by and hang out.
The MCRC is located in 103A Wilder Hall, 221 Stockbridge Rd., UMass
Amherst. Phone, 413-545-5762; firstname.lastname@example.org.
