Ample research documents the need for strong orientation and transition programs to aid student veterans in their journey from military to college life. Recognizing that a one size fits all approach is impractical in addressing the unique obstacles present at individual campuses, this panel will provide insights from three different institutions (Texas A & M- San Antonio, TCU & Texas Woman's University). At this session, participants will learn details about a variety of orientation programs (such as meet & greet and orientation boot camp) and military competency trainings for faculty and staff. Additionally, programs with key partners and ways to involve the SVA chapter will be shared.
