Our Vision

Cypress College is committed to serving veterans. More than 600 student veterans attend the college and the number has continually risen since fall 2009. It will continue to do so as the Global War on Terrorism continues. Because we live in a military community, we at Cypress College believe it’s our responsibility to ensure that none of our veterans are left behind once their service concludes. We vow to serve our veterans by providing the facilities, resources, programs, and social services necessary to succeed.


Your financial support facilitates the success of our student-veterans and the expanded VRC project. Please consider giving.
