The University of Memphis’ Veterans Resource Center (VRC) will host its grand opening
Wednesday, Jan.22, at 1 p.m. in the Panhellenic Building, room 110.
The VRC will offer a new campus space where veterans and military-related students
can relax and study together.
The Center also will provide a variety of services, including: important campus and
community resource information; computers and a printer for personal and academic
use; seminars and outreach events for veterans; and programs to help the campus better
understand the sacrifices and challenges of the military student.
“We are excited about offering a much needed service for our veterans and their dependents,”
said Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, vice president for Student Affairs. “We hope the
Center will help vets have a much richer experience at the University of Memphis. They
have served the country well; we want to serve them very well.”
