Student Veteran Group - Band of Brothers
The Band of Brothers (BOB) is a student-run organization that advocates and supports student Veterans on campus. We pride ourselves on networking with internal and external community resources. The goal of BOB is to build camaraderie among student veterans, families, and allies as we facilitate a seamless transition from military life into higher education and build a foundation for the future. The BOB welcomes and encourages all Veterans, current service members and Dependents including children and spouses. For More information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Veterans Resource Centers
Recognizing our military-affiliated community's unique services and sacrifices, Northampton Community College is committed to serving you. A Veterans Lounge/ Resource Center is designed to support student's educational goals and encourage student growth and development. Many veterans and service members have expressed that one of the biggest challenges faced when transitioning to civilian and student life is the loss of camaraderie. “Lounges” are made to provide comfort to the military community on their journeys, no matter where they are going. The Veterans Lounge/ Resource Center is a safe, dedicated study and community for veterans and service members who can self-discover and build friendships. Some features include a computer lab, educational resources, community resources, and workshops to help veterans complete their degrees and reach their fullest potential.
We promote personal, academic, and professional learning development as our students embark on a journey toward success. Students will have the ability to network, collaborate, problem-solve, and develop transferable skills through programming events and workshops. The Student Veteran Organization on campus, the Band of Brothers, will hold meetings here, and it serves as a focal point for sharing veteran-related information. OG真人官网 encourages students to be authentically themselves.
NOTE: Please be contentious regarding the amount of time spent on the technology provided and your presence in the space if other student veterans are waiting to utilize the resources available.
The VRC should be utilized by veterans and service members. This is a safe "Green Zone" space for student veterans to come in, work on assignments, collaborate, and take a moment to decompress. Any misconduct such as but not limited to: policy in the student handbook, disrespecting peers, faculty/staff, or misusing the purpose of the VRC space. This space is a privilege, not a right. If you see any misconduct, inappropriate behavior, or language being used please report your concern to email@example.com
