Honoring Those Who Have Served

The Veterans Resource Center of West Virginia University at Parkersburg recognizes the service our veteran students have given to our country and the sacrifices made in the process. It is our goal to provide a learning environment that conveys the college’s appreciation and offers the tools and services necessary for veterans to achieve academic success. Over 200 veterans and dependents are currently taking advantage of the many degree certificates, associate and bachelor degrees, and other classes and programs to further their academic and professional interests.
