SF State thanks military veterans

San Francisco State University joins the nation in thanking military veterans for their service to our country on Veterans Day and also throughout the year.

SF State is a leader in supporting those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and is committed to helping active members of the military and veterans of military service attain their educational goals. There are currently more than 800 veterans and their dependents enrolled at the University.

Among the resources offered to student veterans at SF State are the following:

  • V.E.T.S. @ SFSU, which stands for Veterans Education, Transition & Support, a student organization for veterans and their families and friends at SF State
  • The Nancy Pelosi Scholarship Program for National Service, named in honor of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and established in 2012
  • The Veterans Services Center, a one-stop shop for veteran-support services located in the Student Services Building, and VETS Corner, a meeting place for student veterans located in Burk Hall

A special reception for graduating veterans, first held in 2012, takes place each year in May. In addition, SF State's Documentary Film Corps has undertaken an ambitious project called the Veteran Documentary Corps -- creating high-quality, short documentary films that illuminate the lives and experiences of those who have served in the military.

Veterans interested in attending SF State can learn more about the resources available to them, including help with the admissions process and financial aid, at http://www.sfsu.edu/~veterans/
