All about: The Georgetown University Student Veteran Association (GUSVA)

GUSVA-bulldogTell us about your student group.

We are the Georgetown University Student Veteran Association (GUSVA), a chapter of Student Veterans of America. GUSVA is a student group dedicated to advocating for veterans issues on campus.  Our goal is to make a community of student veterans and our allies in the administration who can support, network, socialize, and assist each other as they achieve their educational goals. We know that education is a powerful tool for many veterans to transition to civilian careers and we want to maximize the opportunities for veterans to succeed on campus and beyond.

What are some things your group is planning for this year?

We’re planning a town hall meeting/happy hour, movie nights, Veterans Day activities, and speakers with Q&A sessions.
