EPCC Opens Veterans Lounge at Transmountain Campus

On Monday, officials with El Paso Community College (EPCC) hosted a Grand Opening of its new Transmountain Veterans Lounge.

“The opening of the Veterans Lounge affords and opportunity for veterans to come together as comrades and fellow students in an area to call their own,” Arvis Jones, EPCC Director of Student Leadership and Campus Life.

One of the biggest challenges facing combat veterans is the social isolation they feel when they return from combat.  Many veterans have difficulty adjusting to civilian life, much less adjusting to the academic rigor and social atmosphere of a college.

To help ease that transition, the new lounge offers computers, a printer, snacks and an informal place to study or socialize with other veterans.

EPCC officials added, “EPCC’s goal is to embrace the veteran, military service member and family members to ensure their success at EPCC.”

This is the second such veterans’ area opened by EPCC, as the first Veteran’s Resource Center opened on the Valle Verde campus in 2016.

The Transmountain Veterans Lounge is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
