EKU VETS (Veteran Education and Transition Support) Club is a Registered Student Organization whose purpose is to "assist in promoting the morale, welfare, and assimilation of Veterans, their family members, and those that support them into the campus community."

Why Join?

In the coming weeks and months, we want EKU VETS to become an online (and eventually in-person) platform for you to:

  • Establish a support network of veteran and military-connected students though virtual meetings
  • Build your resume through additional leadership experience as chapter officers or by developing service projects
  • Provide advice to faculty and staff about how to improve YOUR student experience
  • Build a professional network of fellow students with whom you share majors and career aspirations
  • Build upon our status as a chapter of Student Veterans of America (, an organization that provides members with opportunities for career and leadership development across the country
  • Create virtual gaming events, movies nights and other events to connect with each other and relieve some stress that we all are feeling
