Want to connect with other veterans?
PPCC Student Veterans Organization (SVO) is dedicated to help fellow collegiate veterans in the transition from military to college life and to enrich the community with veteran sponsored and patriotic events.
We provide all veterans, military members and their families with resources, support, and advocacy needed for student success. The SVO is a chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA), a national coalition of campus veterans support groups focused specifically on improving conditions and support for student veterans.
All students are welcome to attend meetings. If you are interested in joining the SVO either as an officer or a member, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
