Cal U Veterans Club
Interested in the Veterans Club? Do you have questions or suggestions for the Veterans Club? Would you like to be involved in one of the largest campus clubs?
The California University of Pennsylvania Veterans Club offers a friendly and exciting environment with diverse and dynamic individuals who share many of the same struggles, excitement, concerns or pride of attending California University of Pennsylvania. Transition from combat or from the every day formal structure of the military is quite different from the new challenges in higher education. This new journey requires a great deal of determination, dedication, responsibility, perseverance and support to get through. You are among the elite at California University of Pennsylvania and there are other Veterans who can assist you through.
We provide support, resources and activities for our returning military men and women and their family members or significant others. Current club members include those who are on active duty, served on active duty or are currently serving in a Reserve component such as the Army and Air National Guard, Army Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve and Coast Guard Reserve.
Membership is open to all Veterans, Reservists, Dependents and other students enrolled at California University of Pennsylvania. No formal application for club membership is required. Participation at club meetings is encouraged.
