Why St. Ambrose?

John Fury

We're here for you. This office–solely dedicated to veterans–helps advocate on behalf of veterans and coordinates outreach to local schools, employers and veteran service organizations.

We support you. This year we surveyed our military and veteran students, and overwhelmingly they were pleased with the support they received from the office of Veterans Services. All who responded agreed that they feel welcomed at SAU as veterans and services members by faculty and staff as well.

You're not alone. Nearly 3.5% of the student population at SAU is a veteran or service member. [At larger state universities, it's more like 1.5%.]

Join other veterans who have decided to make St. Ambrose their place to earn their degree:
