TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 22, 2011) -
Tallahassee Community College anticipates a significant increase in the number of veterans on its campus in the coming years and has opened a new Veterans Center to help them transition to academic life and make sure they receive the benefits they are owed.
Located on the second floor of TCC’s Student Union, the Veterans Center’s mission is to assist veterans and reservists—along with their family members and survivors—in obtaining all federal educational benefits and entitlements they have earned by serving in the United States military. The Veterans Center also provides professional guidance and support services that will aid veterans in their transition to academic and civilian life.
Additionally, the Center offers a quiet, convenient place for veterans to study, use a computer or network with other veterans.
“We look forward to welcoming veterans to the College and showing them how proud we are to have them as a part of the TCC family,” said Delorise Robinson, veteran affairs coordinator at TCC.
The Veterans Center is already open and helping TCC’s veterans, but an official ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for March to celebrate its new location.
Veterans with questions about attending TCC are encouraged to call (850) 201-8406 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
