Student veterans will soon have a place at Blue Mountain Community College to study, meet other veterans, and find resources. The BMCC Veteran’s Resource Center will open in Morrow Hall, 2411 NW Carden Ave., Pendleton, on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

The Veteran’s Resource Center was funded by a $50,000 grant from the Oregon Department of Veteran’s Affairs that the college received last year. Student veterans will speak at the center’s grand opening, as well as officers from the state veteran’s affairs office.

“Opening the Veteran’s Resource Center is an exciting opportunity for BMCC to better connect with and provide resources to our students who are veterans,” BMCC President Cam Preus said. “We are so thankful for their service to our country, so providing a place for them to gather, study and gain resources is one way we can show our gratitude and help them toward their educational goals.”
