Moto Photos and Game Day Tickets:

We are still collecting your game day pictures through next Monday, 24 Oct. 

Please send us a good quality image and we will display it on the scoreboard at Sanford Stadium during the UGA vs UL-L game on 19 Nov.
While supplies last, we will also provide our student veterans up to two free non-student tickets to the 19 Nov game in appreciation for their picture submission.  
  • Requests for tickets are found off the link above
NOTE:  Only submit one photo per student veteran. Tickets can be picked up at the 10 Nov Veterans Week Reception (4:30-5:30 outside the SVRC).

Veterans Week Reception

On 10 Nov from 4:30 to 5:30, the SVRC will be hosting our annual Veterans Week Reception.  Dr Whitten (Provost) and Dr McDonald (Dean of Students) are scheduled to attend along with many of our university, corporate and community partners.  ALL student veterans and their families are invited.

In addition to good food and good company, the agenda includes:
  • Recognition of SVRC Fall Scholarship and Award recipients
  • Drawing for a newly signed and framed Coach Smart 2016 football poster
  • Opportunity for registrants to pick up their free football tickets
Please plan to attend!

Non-paid Fall/Spring Internship Opportunity for Microbiology, Chemistry and MIS Majors:  

The Food Safety and Inspection Service Eastern Laboratory, located in the Russell Research Center on College Station Road, is seeking Student Veterans for internship opportunities in microbiology, chemistry, and laboratory management information systems.  In calendar year 2015, the Eastern Lab analysts tested more than 32,000 samples and reported more than 460,000 results on those samples. 

Prospective interns must undergo a federal background check and must be able to perform certain physical and analytical tasks associated with their specific laboratory discipline.   For more information about this opportunity, contact the SVRC.

Student Veteran Scholarships

There are many student veteran-related scholarships we post to our web-page, some of which, such as the national SVA funded awards (e.g Google, Disney, Lilly), close out in the coming weeks.  Please take a minute and check them out.

Did You Know?

Did you know undergraduate Student Veterans, Reservists, Active Duty and National Guard members are eligible for priority registration beginning on 4 Nov?   

If you are on VA benefits or previously participated in PR last spring, you should already be coded for PR this Fall.  Folks that have not self-identified and/or not on VA benefits, should confirm they are coded through the School Certifying Official (Doug Bell {706-542-9362}).
