Remember - We've Moved!

Hello all,

We are happy to announce that Military and Veteran Services office has officially moved. We have joined the International Programs Office (IPO) in Learning Living Communities Building #3. We are no longer located in the Idaho Student Union Building, Room 305. The move brings a larger lounge area along with a separate computer/study room. These areas will be a common area for those students that the Military and Veterans Services Office and the International Programs Office service. Our goal is to have a safe place that is comfortable for those using the lounge areas.     

Please feel free to stop by the office for assistance or to just take a look.
