GRU opens new military center

Posted: Updated:

Maribell Brown has served in the United States army for 10 years. She is also a student at Georgia Regents University and now, there is a center that will give students like Brown extra support.

"I know, I've worked with this group in my G.I post 9-11 bill and they've always been really supportive of everything we need," Brown said.


The Military Resource Center comes fully equipped with a lounge area, a computer lab and a group study room.

"It gives students that have been in the military, or currently in the military, a place to hang out together, a place to study together and a place to be successful together," said Carol Giardina, GRU's Director of Military and Veterans Services.

Staff members are also available in the center to help veterans do everything from transferring credits to processing VA benefits.

"There's going to be a lot of people that you can talk to that know what's available for you and it's the easiest way to get information, said Brown.  "It's a little sanctuary."
