Veterans Organization

Rio Grande is devoted to aiding veterans that are looking to further their education. We offer many forms of aid and our collaboration with veterans organizations from around the state of Ohio provide a strong foundation of services for those who have served. Here is some of the assistance Rio Grande provides for our hard-working soldiers:

  • Veterans Affairs Office: Helps veterans with enrollment, financial aid, and assists with other academic needs.

  • Veterans Center: Grants veterans a place to interact and study on-campus. Open from 8-5pm and after-hours if requested.

  • Veterans Floor in Dorms: We have a floor in our residence halls dedicated to veteran living.
  • Veteran Freshman Success Class: Freshman Success class taught by veterans for veterans.
