The Veterans and Family Student Association
is the student veteran organization at the University of Oregon. It is made up of veterans who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, as well as their family members. The mission of the VFSA is to raise awareness and advocate on behalf of veterans on campus as well as to provide a supportive social community within the larger University of Oregon community. The VFSA organizes several events throughout the year including Veterans Awareness Week in November, the Veteran Memorial Ball in May, and the student veteran graduation ceremony in June. Nontraditional Student Programs can provide information on how you can get involved with this group.
