Veterans!  The Trans Mountain El Paso Community College, (EPCC), campus has a new area just for you.

The EPCC Veterans Lounge is for Vets to use as a gathering site, study area, snack bar or just a place to hang out with other vets.

One of the biggest challenges facing combat veterans is the social isolation they feel when they return from combat.  Many veterans have difficulty adjusting to civilian life, much less adjusting to the academic rigor and social atmosphere of a college.  - EP Herald Post

 

The campus also offers other help and services to veterans. Arvis Jones, EPCC Director of Student Leadership, told the El Paso Herald-Post that

“The opening of the Veterans Lounge affords and opportunity for veterans to come together as comrades and fellow students in an area to call their own,”

This is actually the second "Veterans Resource Center", EPCC's Valle Verde campus has had one since 2016.  UTEP has a veterans services center as well.
