At UConn, I found a sense of community through OASIS. Having a lounge for veterans and being able to hang out and talk has been very beneficial. I can honestly say that some of my best friends on campus were found through the OASIS. The staff assisted me with choosing which VA program would be the best for me to utilize to support my family while attending school. With graduation right around the corner, the academic support and career services provided by UConn have been invaluable.
