NC State Hosts Conference for Military-Affiliated Students and Veterans
As a regional site for the Student Transition Resource Initiative for Veteran's Education (STRIVE) conference, NC State recently served 378 participants, a total nearly equaling last year’s attendance for all four regions. The university continues to strengthen its community of military-affiliated and veteran students through the Military and Veterans Services Center. Private support, like that from NC State University Foundation Board member Jeff Wright, is helping the center become self-sustaining.
