EL PASO, TX (KVIA) -- With over 1200 veteran students pursuing their dreams at UTEP, the Military Student Success Center is the primary resource for these students - helping with their transition from service to education.
Lucas Miller, a UTEP pre-law student and veteran, emphasizes how his military experience shaped him, “you either learn how to live the moment or let it pass. And more often than not, it's better to live it,” he says.
UTEP fosters a strong military community, creating a brotherhood and sisterhood among its members, offering crucial support and camaraderie.
For more resources, Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Endeavors provides year-round mental health care, including counseling and life skills, for soldiers and their families.
As part of their life skills program, the clinic hosts weekly "Warriors at Ease" yoga classes on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. and Thursdays at 5 p.m.
This Veteran’s Day the clinic challenges the community to engage in meaningful conversations beyond a simple "thank you." Rachel Delisle, outreach and life skills coordinator at Endeavors, says we can ask questions like “what branch did you serve in or what was your favorite duty station or what did you take away from your military service?”
Let's accept the challenge and make every day an opportunity to support, appreciate, and engage with our veterans in meaningful ways.
