Veterans recovering from training or war-related injuries should be sure to access the services of the Veterans Health Administration. Treatment for minor injuries and illness can also be obtained at Student Health Services.
The psychological effects of training and combat can (and often do) leave returning members of the armed services with many unanswered questions. Here are just a few of the many services and organizations we recommend.
Cal Poly Pomona’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Office is a caring center that seeks to remove psychological barriers to self-awareness and personal development through access to cutting edge and transformative interventions and healing relationships that respond to each student’s unique needs. We encourage you to stop by the center, located in Building 66, Room 116.
Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling and outreach services to all veterans who served in any combat zone. Services are also available for their family members for military related issues. Veterans have earned these benefits through their service and all are provided at no cost to the veteran or family.
The National Center for PTSD aims to help U.S. Veterans and others through research, education, and training on trauma and PTSD.
Cal Poly Pomona’s Disability Resource Center (DRC) in collaboration with the campus community advocates for equal access and opportunity for individuals with disabilities in all aspects of university life by enhancing personal, academic, and career development. The DRC has been designated as the campus authority to verify disabilities and to prescribe specific accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Individualized academic accommodation programs that do not fundamentally alter academic requirements are designed that enable students to compete academically on an equal basis with peers in their majors. Academic accommodations and support services are available to students who have mobility, visual, or hearing impairments, chronic health conditions, and/or attention, cognitive, learning or psychological disorders. Students with temporary disabilities (e.g., broken arm, sprained ankle) may also be served. To access services, students need to register with DRC. To learn more contact DRC via the DRC website, telephone number 909.869.3333 or visit Building 9, Room 103.

Eateries abound and can be found at Cal Poly Foundation. For that over the top special occasion, we highly recommend The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch.
You might want to bookmark Associated Students Incorporated (ASI). Here you will find a calendar of many on-campus events. Additionally, show your Bronco Pride at one of many NCAA athletic events, catch a live stage production at the campus theater, or attend a fantastic musical production.
Now that you have completed your military service, will you use what you have learned toward a vocation or will you chart a completely different career path? The choice is yours. Some tools that can help you decide a major and career that best fits your unique interests and abilities can be found at Student Support & Equity Programs (SSEP) and at the Career Center. Visiting with an advisor or department chair for the academic majors in which you are interested is strongly recommended.
