Join the Mizzou Student Veterans Association

The Mizzou Student Veterans Association is a high-profile campus organization made up of men and women who have been there, done that — just like you.

We know how difficult the transition from military life to university life can be. The MSVA provides camaraderie and support to help ensure a smooth reintegration into civilian life.

The MSVA sponsors programming for our veterans and provides former and current military personnel with the assistance they need to reach their academic goals.

Please join us at MSVA meetings, happy hours and social gatherings, where family and friends are also welcome. We sponsor float trips, pub crawls, picnics and lectures by nationally prominent speakers, and we have a full week of events during November’s Veterans Week.

For more information of upcoming events join us on Facebook and at
