Veteran and Nontraditional Student Services

Supporting Students

For veterans and nontraditional students, going to college means a lot more than going to class. Oftentimes, being an older student requires more time and commitment outside of the classroom with managing work, finances, relationships and families. The Veteran and Nontraditional Student Center (VNSC) is here to support students. Students can stop into the center at any time to learn about upcoming programs, utilize our resources or just hang out and study. We are always growing and seeking new ways to build the space and present opportunities our Nontraditional students may need to grow at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
