Student Veterans of America, Hawkeye Community College Chapter

The Student Veterans of America, Hawkeye Community College Chapter, seeks to enhance the quality of life for both military and civilian students. The Hawkeye Student Veterans Association is an actively involved campus organization created and made up by servicemen and women who have been there-done that just like you.

We know how difficult the transition from military life to civilian life and then to college life can be. We provide the support and camaraderie to help you navigate and reintegrate in to this “new normal” of civilian and college life.

Please join us at Hawkeye Student Veterans of America meetings, social gatherings and events, where your family and friends are welcome to join. We sponsor picnics, speakers, community service, and other events to build the community of student military and veterans on campus as well and continue service to others. Use your leadership skills to help us develop a great organization that makes a difference.
