Student Veterans of America (SVA)

The Student Veterans of America (SVA) is committed to advocating for student veterans on our campuses to engender a veteran first learning environment. Our goal is to ensure that every student veteran successfully transitions into college life, remains successful all the way up to graduation, and then successfully finds employment.

If you want to step out from the crowd and help make a difference in the lives of those who served, then join the SVA-UTRGV Chapter today!

We meet on Tuesday from 12:15 p.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Military and Veterans Success Center located at the University Center (EUCTR) 113. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact the chapter president via e-mail at
