The Student Veterans Association (SVA) at TAMUG provides assistance as well as resources for transitioning military personnel. Our mission is to create a comfortable social, and informational environment for veterans while they transition to academia.
We are extremely excited that you have chosen to make Texas A&M Galveston your new home, and thank you for your brave service to our country.
Balancing college with a busy work schedule, and adjusting to civilian life, can be a lot to manage all at once. One reason our chapter exists, is to aid new and current veterans in the transition process, and the overall college experience. As many of our members represent the various backgrounds in the military climate, we seek to model excellence on and off campus, to serve as role models for the student body and to people in the community. With so veterans, we represent a substantial part of the TAMUG student life. The TAMUG-SVA has a fantastic network of adjunct personnel who are always nearby to lend a helping hand, as well as an extensive list of resources on and off campus. Additionally, the SVA participates in community events several times a year, by way of Big Event and community fund raising.
Our membership meets every Thursdays at 12:00pm in the Northen Banquet Room located in the Mary Moody Northen Student Center.
We always welcome new veterans and look forward to assisting in your new scholastic career! If you need resources or assistance, ASK!! The SVA leadership is here to make this the best experience possible!
Since our inception in 2008, SVA has operated and is structured as a member-driven organization. We are continuously looking for ways to better serve and support student veterans. Come and join us at our local events, or meet us around campus.
Students receiving veterans’ educational benefits should also apply for financial aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid includes grants (need based free money), low interest student loans, and work-study (funding which pays a student’s wages as incentive for employment).
