A Look at the UI's New Veterans Lounge

In January, the Veteran Student Support Services at University of Illinois hosted the grand opening for a recreational area for student veterans at the Illini Union. The lounge has study desks and a TV space with comfortable chairs and an electric fireplace. It is an oasis for the veterans, who use this space for studying, holding meetings, and sharing their military experience. The Office of the Dean of Students oversees the lounge which is located in the Union's lower level.
