once founded we became the clemson university chapter of the Student Veterans of america.
a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.
TO BUILD AND SUSTAIN EMPOWERED VETERANS IN THE CLEMSON COMMUNITY THROUGH FELLOWSHIP, SUPPORT, AND CONTINUOUS SERVICE.
We accomplish this through:
Every moment spent serving our country was together, every moment spent learning should be together. As brothers and sisters in arms, we believe it is important to continue developing military-connected relationships and retain previous ones on our higher education journey in order to support a smooth transition into civilian life. By doing this, we can learn from the legacy of veterans before us and help to shape the veterans that come after us.
As veterans and military-connected students, we understand how tough the transition from service member to civilian can be. As an organization, we come together to support each other during this time. Whether it cheering on the sidelines for our flag football team, helping a member move, or just providing resources for veteran needs - we are always striving to support one another in the best way possible.
As veterans, we find it hard to break the built habits of servant leadership. For most of us, it is what appealed most to our calling join the U.S. Armed Forces. We are constantly looking for ways to give back to our community. As an organization continuous service is the foundation of who we are and what mark we want to leave at Clemson University. Through fundraisers, community service, and opportunities to grow as leaders and individuals, our members are provided various options in where to serve our chapter.
