Invitation

Since 1944 the Servicemen's Readjustment Act, also known as the GI Bill, has impacted the lives of millions of Veterans and their families. The law provided a wide range of benefits to Veterans returning from World War II, including low-cost home loans, education and vocational training, unemployment payments, and an expansion of Veterans' health care.

In honor of this anniversary, EY (Ernst & Young), one of the largest professional services firms in the world, is hosting a community event in Tysons, Virginia on April 30th from 3 PM to 6 PM. This event is a great opportunity to network with the DMV area veterans community, and for those who are interested, explore employment opportunities at EY.

Please share this opportunity with members of your student veteran community whom you think might appreciate this opportunity.

You can learn more about the event and RSVP here: https://gema.ey-vx.com/1146/7836/compose-email/invitation.asp?sid=blankform

Do you enjoy learning and working with other veterans on campus? Are you interested in adding leadership experience to your resume? Do you want to be involved in a network of professionals that opens doors to career opportunities all across the nation?

The Mason Veteran Patriots (George Mason’s chapter of the Student Veterans of America) are looking for student veterans to serve as officers for the 2019-2020 school year. MVP is focused on improving the campus life of student veterans and their families, helping them towards their path to success during and after their collegiate careers. We also provide student veterans with a network of peers all across the nation that can give advice from how to succeed as a non-traditional college student with an established life outside of school, to the best internship opportunities from veteran-minded companies, and even tips and tricks to navigating the VA. Officers work closely with SVA Headquarters, who are always prepared to assist our chapter with whatever we need to succeed. The SVA annual convention is the largest gathering of Post 9/11 Veterans in the US and provides student veterans with all the tools to become a leader in both your campus and community.

If you are interested in running for an open officer position, send us a short e-mail ([email protected]) with the following information, so that we can evaluate the best fits for these positions. Applications will be accepted until April 22nd, and we will make our decisions no later than April 26th. - Name
- G#
- Major
- Short personal statement (about 100 words) about yourself, and
- One thing you would like to see as an improvement for veteran life on campus “Yesterday’s warriors, today’s scholars, tomorrow’s leaders” #MasonVeteranPatriots #SVA #SVALeads

Great opportunity for military families in the Mason community!#service

When a military member deploys, his or her family face a unique set of challenges, and outside spaces might be one of them. That's why we're proud supporters of @Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops that provides complimentary lawn and landscape services for families with a service member overseas.

Salute to all who have served and their families on this Veterans Day https://bit.ly/2fyOSqI
