NLU Student Veterans of America Chapter

NLU Student Veterans of America (SVA) Chapter consists of a group of dedicated student veteran leaders who meet to coordinate chapter activities to include; fundraising, social and community events, national conferences paid in full, etc. SVA membership provides student veterans personal and professional growth opportunities by connecting them with leaders and mentors from various industries, for example, business, finance, healthcare, etc. This will allow student veterans to network and will help facilitate their career search.

The SVA meetings are held in the Veterans Resource Center (VRC), located on the Chicago campus, room 5044 and via zoom.  The VRC serves as a focal point for all NLU veteran and military-connected students, where they can relax, socialize, do homework, and learn about more available resources.

If you are interested in learning more about the NLU veterans program or joining the SVA, we invite you to stop by the Veterans Resource Center, or register here.
