Veterans attending Mount Mercy University have a new place to network. In June, the university opened a lounge on the first level of Warde Hall specifically for service men and women to call their own.
“With computer stations and a printer, microwave and mini-fridge, meeting table and comfortable seating, we hope the lounge offers a welcoming place for veterans to connect with one another as well as to study and relax in between classes,” said Rob Callahan, vice president for enrollment management at Mount Mercy.
The lounge is in convenient proximity to the Office of Financial Aid and the registrar, both important players in sorting out veteran’s educational benefits.
“I’m glad the lounge is close by,” said Mount Mercy Registrar Chance McWorthy, whose office is just a flight above the space. “I hope the location encourages students to drop by with any questions they may have about their education benefits.”
The Veteran’s Lounge is open during regular building hours for Mount Mercy students, as well as staff, who have served in the U.S. military.
