Come Join Our Club Meetings!

Every other Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. the veterans club has a meeting at the Veteran’s Resource Center, which located in the Campus Center next door to the bookstore. One of the goals we have at our veteran’s club meetings is to gather the thoughts and ideas our veteran students have that will improve their experience at West Valley College. Most of our meetings present opportunities for veterans to connect with each other, and share stories and personal experiences. I know that I have swapped many stories with many people over the course of the semester. So come by the Veteran's resource center, we are always looking for more veterans to show up.
