    WELCOME BACK STUDENT VETERANS AND INCOMING TRANSFER VETERANS

    As the heading states, welcome back everyone!  To our new veterans, welcome aboard!  Classes kick off once more this Thursday, so I hope you all had a great and relaxing summer.  As opening news, I would like to welcome Ms. Beth Stanish as our new VETS Coordinator!  As an Army reservist herself, shes bring a plethora of valuable knowledge to the UCSC staff.  Look forward to seeing more events this year with her at the helm!  Speaking of events we will be participating at the OPERS fall festival this year.   We will be sitting a table with the STARS group, so look for us there!  Lastly, we have an upcoming veteran meet and greet this October on the 16th.  As we flesh out the details we will post updates on the meet and greet on the website.  Hope to see you all out there and have a great start to the school year!
