We have a support team to offer guidance from the moment student veterans arrive on campus until they graduate. The Sanctuary also offers orientations designed for new student veterans, free vet-to-vet tutoring, access to academic advisors trained to work with veterans, sections of general education classes set aside for veterans and taught by faculty members who are either veterans themselves or supporters, events and activities for student veterans, and much more. We help with the transition from active military duty to ISU, and from ISU to active military duty. Whether you are a new student who has completed your service, a student who interrupted your education to serve and are now returning, or a student who began your studies elsewhere and are transferring here, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your ISU experience.
