"I would describe the VRC as a haven. It's a place to go, at any time, where everyone cares and is willing to help. I have used the VRC as a place to keep lunch and books, stop in during breaks, work on homework, get free tutoring, get scholarship advice, receive help on resumes and internship applications, get advice and solutions to other problems, grab a much needed cup of coffee, and make good friends. I have received two NASA internships and used the VRC resources to obtain them. I am very thankful our school has the VRC!"

non-traditional students save money."

"I returned to school, it was obvious I would need an academic support group to succeed, but I felt out of place studying with traditional students.
