JCCC Veterans Club
The Veteran’s Club is an inclusive, non-partisan group that supports all JCCC students connected to military services, active duty, veterans, reserve, guard and their dependents.
The club's goal is to provide social activities, opportunities to participate in community service, further the advancement of veterans in higher education, and networking for jobs.
The club meets on the first Wednesday of every month during the semester from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the In Focus Dining Room located next to Dining Down Under in the Commons building. At our meetings we often have lunch provided. In addition to guest speakers, we discuss upcoming events that include anything from social activities to fundraisers and community outreach opportunities.
