Connecting Veterans to Veterans
There is a wide network of support services for those who have proudly served in the military. Finger Lakes Community College’s partnership with the Canandaigua VA Medical Center gives veterans access to a variety of resources that can help ease the transition from military to civilian life.
Veteran's Club is a social and educational organization providing service and support for military and non-military students. The intent of Veteran's Club is to harness the collective experience and knowledge of all members involved, as well as provide social functions for members in order to better serve:
- Veteran students
- Their families
- Finger Lakes Community College
- The greater community
