    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!

    CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2014 VETERAN GRADUATES!


    As stated.  Congratulations to our newly minted Veteran Graduates!  It’s sad to see you all depart but I’m sure you're all off to even greater things.  For our continuing vets, FINALS ARE FINALLY OVER!  Have a great summer vacation and have fun out there!  Remember stay safe and always bring a liberty buddy.  Okay maybe not a liberty buddy but I’m sure you all know the gist.  For our incoming veterans, we look forward to see you all here in the fall!  If you want information on the campus or even possibly a tour during the summer, let us know!  For good contacts during the summer, I am available at ckempis@ucsc.edu and our awesome Ms. Claudia Parish (Our veteran S.T.A.R.S Rep.) is available at cparrish@ucsc.edu.

    Have a great summer everyone!
