The Veteran Student Organization (VSO) is a Tier II student organization of UConn undergraduate and graduate students that support veterans at the University. The VSO regularly hosts social events, holds care package drives, and works to ensure incoming veteran students are as welcome as possible. Although most members are veterans, this is not a requirement!
Some events that you can participate in with the VSO include rock painting, veteran’s late night, hikes, movie night, volunteer work (such as supporting local boy scouts and girl scouts), and free attendance and recognition at the SUPERFLAG football game (RSVP by Sep 18th) and at guest speaker events. This year we will be going on an historical trip to Boston!
