(The Military and Veteran Success Center)…It opened this fall at Imperial Valley College.
The Center offers help for the 101 veterans enrolled at IVC, as well as their dependents. It is housed in the former Casbah Room in the Student center. It offers a place where students with military backgrounds can get help from a designated veteran’s counselor in developing their educational plans. They can review courses and majors, and get other academic advice. Staffing includes a counselor and office personnel, along with Student Success Specialist Esther Frias, a US Army National Guard Veteran who served in Afghanistan. The Center is open and serving veterans. The Grand Opening for the Center will be held next spring, although a date has not been set.
