The Veteran’s Club has had another great year! We have sponsored a number of events for our student veterans as well as for all students, staff and faculty members throughout the 2010 - 2011 academic year. We have partnered with a variety of organizations including "Beyond the Yellow Ribbon" of Isanti County, Cambridge American Legion, and the Minnesota Military Families Foundation.

The VMSO is here at the Cambridge Campus was recently approved as a member chapter of the Student Veterans of America (SVA). This is exciting news for our Veteran students as they will be able to tap into all that this fine national organization has to offer. To check it out for yourself, go to

The VMSO has experienced significant growth to over the past 12 months with a current number of 40 student members. Highlights from fall semester included a Veteran’s Day event, complete with a U.S. Army Honor Guard flag presentation ceremony and our own Veteran’s Director, Phil O’Donnell as keynote speaker, right here on the Cambridge Campus.

We held a Veteran’s Night-Out during each semester at Junction Bowl in Isanti, which is a favorite event among our Vet’s Club Members and their families.
