Veterans’ Lounge (Jamestown Campus)

The newly designated Veterans’ Lounge in the Carnahan Center provides study and recreation space for our military students, as well as an opportunity to meet and socialize with other veterans and service members. The Veterans’ Lounge also serves as an information point where students can access veteran-specific materials relating to campus resources, education benefits, scholarships, VA benefits, community-based veterans organizations, and upcoming campus and community veterans events.

Veterans’ Club (Cattaraugus County Campus)

Club Valor, an official chapter of the Student Veterans of America, provides a friendly and engaging environment to interact with those who may share many of the same struggles, excitement, concerns, or interests. Club Valor aims to assist in the transition from soldier to civilian and student by providing support, resources, activities, and camaraderie for our returning military men and women and their family members and significant others. For more information on Club Valor, please contact Fred Moricca at 716.376.7561.
