"Student to Student,
Veteran to Veteran,
We are Family,
We are SVA."
Welcome to the Student Veterans Association Georgia State University chapter. Every Veteran faces tremendous obstacles as they begin, or return to, college life. No one understands these challenges better than current Student Veterans. SVA (GSU) was created by Veterans for Veterans, in August 2009. This organization attempts to assist in each Veterans transition form military to college life. SVA helps to turn yesterday's warriors into today's scholars, and tomorrow's leaders.
Student Veterans Association (GSU) official Mission Statement:
The purpose of Student Veterans Association (SVA) at Georgia State University is to provide a peer-to-peer network of proven military leaders and current students. We accomplish this goal with three primary initiatives:
1) Develop esprit de corps amongst current and future GSU students who are military veterans.
2) Advocate on behalf of student veterans at all levels of government.
3) Partner with local and national organizations to provide student veterans all available resources for continued success as they transition from the battlefield to the boardroom
SVA (GSU) membership is open to all Student Veterans as well as faculty and staff who are Veterans. We also support and welcome family members of current and prior military personnel. We are a Veteran organization, however, non-Veterans are more then welcome to join Student Veterans Association (GSU).
