New Military Microsite Launched, www.grace.edu/militarystudents
WINONA LAKE, IND. – Grace College and Seminary recently launched a Military specific website for all current and prospective military students. Grace is committed to coming alongside Military veterans, dependents, and those currently serving in the Military through providing quality education and services. Grace College seeks to help those who have made a difference in our armed forces make a successful transition into civilian life.
The new website is designed to be a resource not only for current and prospective Military students at Grace, but also for community members with a Savings at Local Businesses page. Also featured on the website is the Grace College Student Veterans Organization, the Veteran Affairs Student Services Team, military benefits, and financial aid opportunities. The website can be found at www.grace.edu/military.
Grace College and Seminary has grown its Military program in the last year through building the VA Lounge and Resource Center located on the Grace College Campus in the Gordon Recreation Center. The VA Lounge is a place for veteran students to connect and commune with fellow veterans, network and share strategies, information, and support one another as they adjust to civilian life and a Higher Education environment. In addition to the lounge, the Grace Student Veterans Organization provides activities and events for students to interact and share with one another. Recently the Student Veterans Organization put on a campus wide Scavenger Bingo that was a huge success. Also, the SVO partnered with Metzger Outdoors to host Nocturnal II: Military Edition which included a 5k run, 10 mile bike race, and ‘ridiculous’ adventure race!
