Expanded Veterans Success Center opens at Sac State
Sacramento State has unveiled an expanded, refurbished Veterans Success Center in Lassen Hall. The renowned center, which serves more than 1,300 veterans and their dependents, helps students get their GI benefits, navigate the admission process and register for courses. The center also helps veterans access campus resources, get involved in leadership activities and transition into the civilian work world.

The program, which places students in full-time staff positions in the State Legislature, executive branch and court system, was evaluated and honored by Vault.com, a career management research and information website.
