The 'Necks' Big Thing

The 'Necks' Big Thing in Supporting Those Who Served

Western Illinois University remains committed to supporting our student veterans, active service members, and their families through the Veterans Resource Center. Just as they have dedicated themselves to serving our country, we must ensure they receive the best care, education, and support as they transition to civilian and academic life.

Inspired by the legacy of Colonel Rock Hanson, the Veterans Resource Center stands as a beacon of support, offering comprehensive services and resources in a convenient one-stop location.

Your Western Challenge gift honors the sacrifices made by our student veterans and their families and directly impacts their success and well-being while helping Western maintain its top military-friendly status.
