This Veteran’s Day, we honor our Cal Poly Pomona student and alumni veterans by reflecting on the impact of the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) over the last ten years.
Established in 2012, the VRC commemorated its 10th anniversary in October, celebrating a decade of supporting the personal and academic success of CPP’s military affiliated students.
“A lot of us feel like we’re by ourselves when we go to school, and once we come to the VRC, it helps us feel like we belong,” said Jovan Santos, student-veteran.
Take a look at the VRC’s milestones, achievements, and student stories from 2012-2022.
