Incoming student veterans can arrive on campus confident in the knowledge that fellow student veterans will be on hand to help them navigate the transition to college life.

BGSU is one of just three schools nationwide participating in a pilot program administered by the Veterans Administration (VA) called PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veterans Education).

PAVE is a peer support program that connects incoming student veterans with student veterans already on campus. PAVE peer advisers can help identify any challenges that student veterans are facing and help locate appropriate resources on or off campus. They provide ongoing support to help student veterans meet academic and personal goals.
