Veterans Center

Vanguard University is dedicated to supporting our veteran and military-connected community as they navigate the college campus in pursuit of their educational goals. The Veterans Resource Center is staffed by veterans and dependents making the same journey as our students, providing peer advising and mentoring opportunities for new students to Vanguard. Our VRC staff comes from all that Vanguard has to offer - Traditional Undergraduate, Professional Studies, and Graduate Education. 

We also invite you to join the Vanguard Veteran Club, designed to connect veteran and military-connected students to the campus community. The club is an opportunity for both social and service opportunities serving both Vanguard and the larger Orange County community.

Veterans Club

At Vanguard, we call it our relationship culture. Built into the fabric of our interactions is a culture that causes us to go beyond the normal definition of community, reaching out and connecting with each other. We are driven to serve one another, our city, and our world in practical ways through missions projects both here in Orange County and around the world.

Running my own business has definitely taught me things that cannot be taught through school. Prior to my business career I was in the Marine Corps, and learned a totally different skill set. With the different experiences in life that I have encountered it is refreshing to find a school/ program I can use all my experiences.

The SPS program has encouraged me, challenged me, and pushed me to want to be better in my business life, as well as my faith. The program really has opened my eyes to a different side of education that I have never had before. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone out there.
