How has the Union helped you become more than a student?

"The Union has enabled me to draw on my military background to apply many different leadership traits, through my participation in the Board of Directors and the Carolina Veterans Organization. Because the Carolina Veterans Organization office is conveniently located in the Union, we can better coordinate our efforts and prioritize different projects. Having space in the Union also allows us to host a centralized collection of resources for veteran and military-related students."
