The Student Veteran Center is located on the Rogers State University Claremore campus in the Fine Arts Annex located between Preparatory Hall and Baird Hall. It houses study and lounge space for student veterans, active military, and military-affiliated students to study, relax and foster a sense of community. 

The SVC is made possible in part by the Oklahoma Military Academy Alumni Association. In honor of the OMA’s rich tradition, RSU continues to provide transformational educational opportunities to student veterans and their families.
