Student Veteran Organization
Welcome to Ole Miss! My name is Stephen Gutschow, current president of the Ole Miss Student Veterans of America (OMSVA). First off, the OMSVA is new on campus along with the Office of Veteran and Military Services. The mission of the OMSVA is to provide military veterans with the resources, support and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education as well as develop a sense of camaraderie within the student veteran community on campus. This is a student run organization with veterans at its core. While we are open to all those wishing to help the veteran community it is intended to be an organization by veterans for veterans. As a veteran I know the difficulties one can face in the transition from military to civilian life and would like to give you my email and phone number so you can reach me with any questions you might have. Additionally, with the OMSVA being a new organization, it has limitless potential for growth and development. It will become whatever its veteran members want it to become.
So, if you have any questions, big or small, please don’t hesitate to call or write. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (520) 977-8039.
I look forward to meeting you in person. It’s an exciting time to be a veteran at Ole Miss!
