Volunteers Needed - Homeless Veterans Stand-Down
April 28th from 0800-1300 at the Sarasota Health Department located at 2200 Ringling Boulevard
We have a semi truck coming in from the DoD loaded with military surplus to issue out to homeless veterans to include such items as: (1) rucksacks, (2) boots, (3) wet weather gear, (4) and other relevant surplus. Volunteer opportunities are, but not limited to the following: unloading the DoD semi truck the day before the event, issuing surplus, marketing, event arrangement, and event clear-out.
Welcome to the USF Student Veterans Subject Guide! We hope that this guide will be helpful to our military veterans who are returning to school, as well as to students and faculty with an interest in veteran’s services. Our focus is to provide current information from the news, links to outside services that veterans might benefit from, and information that will help student veterans in their studies.

A note from our University President
This week we celebrate with our graduates as each institution within the USF System holds its commencements. We will graduate a record of more than 5,700 students, all pursuing their aspirations in new careers or further study. They came to us from 45 states and 97 nations, and we are honored to be their alma mater, their home for learning and personal growth.
Many of our graduates are veterans of the armed forces, and we’re especially honored to be ranked 8th in the nation for our programs for returning veterans. A recent story in USA Today highlighted USF and our students as one of the great examples of universities leading the transition from combat to classroom.
