Extended Hours @ Center for Studying

Starting Dec. 10th - Dec. 17th the Center will be open from 8:30AM - midnight. The classroom/computer lab/study room will be the "quiet zone," while the lounge/kitchen will be used for group study and relaxation.

These extended hours will only be available if students can guarantee they will be able to make it (translation: we need volunteers to be on site.) Let me know (pstark2@illinois.edu) if you're interested in being at the Center anytime between 5pm-Midnight during those days. Staff will be there during normal work hours (8-5pm), and on Wednesday a schedule will be released.

 Veteran Transition Course - Spring 2016

Dr. Nicholas Osborne is offering his Veterans Transition Course (AHS-199) this Spring semester, but only if you're interested in taking the course. Meaning = I need a head count of actual students interested this year.

This course is meant to provide assistance and guidance for student veterans (all types: freshman, transfer, seniors) and provide them with the tools to navigate through college life and information about all the resources for student veterans. 
- Yes, it's a college credit, currently 2 credit hours (trying to push for 3 credits)

If you're interested, please e-mail me pstark2@illinois.edu saying that you're interested in AHS-199. Those who are interested, we'll try to work out a schedule based upon the majority's availability.

 Tutor a Veteran, & Get Paid Doing It

We’re looking for student veterans who are willing to tutor in various courses at UIUC, based upon the demand of other student veterans. This will be coordinated through the Center for Wounded Veterans, and you could possibly be paid for your tutoring services (via Veterans Tutoring Assistance VA22-1990t) If you are interested, please e-mail me the courses you’d be able and willing to tutor (pstark2@illinois.edu).

  Illini Veterans 4th Annual Memorial 5K Walk/Run– April 10th 2016

Early Registration is open for the Illini Veterans Memorial 5K Walk/Run. This event honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and it is a way for veterans to continue serving, as the majority of the proceeds are donated to the Chez Family Foundation Center for Wounded Veterans in Higher Education. Please register, make a donation…and most important, SPREAD THE WORD!  http://bit.ly/1IBlsEX https://www.facebook.com/IlliniVeteransMemorial5K

 Last Weekly Counseling – Dec. 10th @ Esquires (9PM)

This is our last coordinated weekly counseling for 2015! You'll be studying all day (or not), so come out and have a beer (or two, or three) and celebrate our VP’s, Rachel Eng, birthday. Lord knows we've earned it.
