Military and Veteran Student Lounge Improvement

Thank you!

We have been so fortunate to secure some non-monetary gifts for our project, including a refrigerator, microwave, microwave stand and carpet! Because of these generous donations, we are lowering our monetary goal to $3,000. However, if we raise more than $3,000, we could do even more to make this space for military and veteran students even better! 

 

Carroll University has a rich history of military honor dating back to the Civil War. We recognize that student veterans may have different needs than those of traditional students. A military student lounge is one of the ways Carroll University meets the need of belonging, and we are off to a great start with a space in the heart of the Campus Center.  But, we need your help. 

Please join us in improving this lounge, including adding more desk/work space, another computer, lounge furniture, refrigerator, microwave, coffee station, a supply cabinet and a new door.

Did you know...?

"Seventy-one percent of institutions that offer programs and services for military and veteran students have a dedicated office serving those students, up from 49 percent in 2009; 

Forty-seven percent offer a veteran student lounge or gathering place, up from 12 percent in 2009." (American Council on Education) 

Carroll has both!

"Despite the differences among individual veterans, recommendations have been implemented by many institutions to help ensure veterans are successful in higher education, and have received a great deal of positive feedback from students: Improve campus climate by establishing a student veterans group, educating faculty and staff about veteran-specific issues, and if possible, creating a veteran-specific resource center or designated space." (Association of American Colleges & Universities)

"A safe space such as a veterans lounge can also help establish a welcoming environment. While not essential on all campuses, in such spaces, a segment of veterans may experience the greatest sense of inclusion they will feel, or even need to feel, on campus." (Association of American Colleges & Universities)

 

We thank you in advance for your support!
