Get support at AWC and the Local Community

Student Veterans Club – The AWC Student Veterans and Service-members Organization (SVSO) is a recognized AWC student club that provides networking, social assistance, and leadership development throughout the college experience. Membership is open to all AWC active duty, veteran, and family members of service members along with any AWC student that supports those who defend our nation. To join send your contact information (Name, AWC ID number, Phone, Email) to Daniel.Davis@azwestern.edu.

The AWC Student Veterans Organization is proud to be a chapter of the Student Veterans of America organization.

Student Military and Veteran Center – Located on the top floor of the 3C, the Student Military and Veteran Center is a lounge and meeting space where student veterans can study, socialize, and relax in between classes. It is equipped with Wi-Fi access, public computer workstations, flat screen TV, refrigerator, microwave, and a quiet study room.

Vet Net Ally Program – Look for the Vet Net Ally decal around campus, as these allies can provide support, information, and assistance for service members and veterans. Vet Net Allies understand the needs and concerns of military service members and student veterans. If you see a Vet Net Ally decal in their workspace, you know they are veteran supportive and will take the extra step to assist you and your family.
