Tidewater Community College’s Center for Military and Veterans Education, in conjunction with Vet Success on Campus, will host the second annual Veteran Symposium on Oct. 8 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Joint-Use Library on the Virginia Beach Campus

All veterans, active duty military transitioning to civilian life and dependents are welcome to attend this free event on the second floor of the library. Topics to be covered include academic program advising, counseling services at TCC, use of GI Bill benefits, Veterans Administration home loans and networking opportunities with potential employers. Attendees are encouraged to bring resumes.
 
“We want our veterans to know we are here as a community to serve them, just as they have so diligently served our country,” said TCC’s Carla Riggins, coordinator of Vet Success on Campus. “The symposium will be an open-door forum, so veterans can come in and sit through all the presentations or pick and choose the ones they are interested in.”
 
Guest speakers from the Veterans Administration Medical Center, Virginia Employment Commission, Give an Hour, Opportunity Inc., Vet Center and TCC will provide short presentations. Norfolk Southern, Lockheed Martin, Dominion Enterprises, Account Temps and Liberty Tax are among the employers that will be in attendance.
