We are proud to welcome returning veterans to UW-L. We are extremely
grateful for the service and sacrifices you have made for our country. On
this page, you will find some resources to assist you in making a smooth and
successful transition to UW-L.
To begin with, you are encouraged to attend the following program designed
specifically for you:
Friday, September 2nd
FROM COMBAT TO COLLEGE, VETERANS ORIENTATION— 10-1 p.m.
Port O ‘Call, Cartwright Center
If you would like a one stop shop for your new resources available here at
UW-L, then this orientation is for you. After the Chancellor welcomes you to
campus, representatives from the Advising Center, the Counseling Center,
and Disability Resource Center will present important information to help you
get started at UW-L. We’ll also have both the county and university Veterans’
representatives ready for any questions you may have about topics such as
the GI bill or what paperwork you need to file for money or a disability claim.
There will be door prizes, lunch, a campus tour and time to meet and socialize
with fellow veterans, including members of the campus Veterans Club (SVA).
